Remember back in April when Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project went on a road trip? They stopped in Kansas City, Missouri to brew with Boulevard. The group created the 3rd installment of Boulevard’s Smokestack Collaboration Series. Pretty Things is a bit like Mikkeller, Evil Twin, & Stillwater as they don’t have a physical brewery. Their gypsy brewers, that create tasty is various places around the U.S. The above is a prime example.
So what is it?
They created an English style ale called “Stingo.” Stingo is a strong ale originating the northern England. It’s a pretty old style too. You’ll find literature references to it before 1700. They are oak aged (usually more than a year) before arriving in your glass. Stingo is said to “sting” the palate, thus the name was born.
