Carolina Bauernhaus plans to bottle their spicy ‘Walhallapeno”

Carolina Bauernhaus Walhallapeno

Anderson, South Carolina’s Carolina Bauernhaus is planning on bottling their spicy Walhallapeno beer. A collaboration with Frothy Beard Brewing.

If you are a fan of heat, you’ll find it here. Jalapeños bring the burn, rounded out by a touch of tartness by the base beer which is a gose. This beer has been frequently found in the taproom and has a loyal following. As we understand it, one of the founders of Frothy Beard hails from Wahalla, South Carolina. Thus, the derivation of the Walhallapeno name.

Salty! Sour! Spicy! Walhallapeno is our delightfully refreshing collaboration with our friend at Frothy Beard Brewing in Charleston, SC. The bright spicy flavor of locally grown jalapeño peppers are a delicious complement to our salty and sour Gose. This rustic refined flavored ale was oak fermented with our house blend of native yeast and soured with locally sourced lactobacillus from SouthYeast Labs.

Carolina Bauernhaus Walhallapeno is slated for 22 ounce bottles, and already available on draft.

Style: Gose (w/ Jalapeno Peppers)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft.
Debut (Bottles): TBA

Dry hopped sour: Carolina Bauernhaus Kuningilin

Carolina Bauernhaus Kuningilin

Carolina Bauernhaus Kuningilin debuts on June 24th.

Nearby Asheville, North Carolina Riverbend Malt House and their Wrens Abruzzi Rye Malt serves at the base inspiration for this new release. Head brewery and co-founder Keston Helfrich oak soured a golden ale, then dry-hopped it with Vic Secret and Amarillo hops.

RELATED: Carolina Bauernhaus & the sweetest watermelons

The wren, not only the name of the malt, but pictured on the label, is “king of the birds” according to German legend. It is said it got that title by hitching a ride on the back of an eagle in order to become the highest flying bird in the world.

The spicy and earthy character of the rye malt used in this rustic refined ale is held aloft by a tart acidity drawn from our house strain of natively collected lactobacillus and crowned by a bright dry hop blend of Vic Secret and Amarillo hops.

Carolina Bauernhaus Kuningilin will be available in 750 milliliter bottles when the brewery opens on June 24th.

Style: American Wild Ale
Hops: Vic Secret, Amarillo

A massive amount of farm fresh Bradford watermelons were added after aging for a bright, refreshing, and very South Carolina summer-like flavor braced by a tart sour finish.
