21st Amendment and Elysian Brewing have two different collaborations coming out in cans soon. Both collaborations are called He Said and have similar artwork, but the insides are stylistically different. One is a Belgian style tripel with pumpkin and spices. The second is actually a Baltic porter, lager brewed (that’s a departure from how it is actually brewed) with pumpkin and spices. Two different imaginative, pumpkin-y takes on some old school styles.
A new can is in the works. A new collaboration between 21st Amendment (San Francisco) and Elysian (Seattle, WA). He Said is a new spin on a Belgian style tripel with the addition of pumpkin. After doing a little research, you’d be hard pressed to find one like this. This is actually 1 of 2 in a series of collaborations between the west coast breweries. The latter is a Baltic porter.
21st Amendment will can this 8.2% ABV offering. Try tailgating all day with this one.
On shelves now is Evil Twin’s NomadER Wit. A place on their “gypsy ” brewer status.
Some people we know – they write about beers and they have called those of us at Evil Twin Brewing “nomads”. Other people we know – they built a hotel and a restaurant, and their neighborhood didn’t really have a name, so they called that “NoMad”. And how interesting that both nomads in NoMad enjoy a Brett-feremnted wit beer with notes of coriander and orange peel. So, no matter what – hit the road or hunker down… this beer was made nice, just for you.
Style: Witbier (w/ Orange Peel, Coriander)
Availability: 22oz bombers
Arrival: August, 2013
The newest addition to Elysian Brewing’s Oddland Series will be Spiced Pear Ale. This unique ale was brewed with pears, Yakima Cascade and Czech Saaz hops, and finished with a bit of cumin and cardamom for an exotic Asian-fusion flavor. Expect to see this starting July 15 2013 as well as at the Oregon Brewers Festival July 24-28 in Portland.
Style: Pale Ale (w/ Pear, Cumin, and Cardamom)
Availability: 22 oz bottles, Draft
Arrival: July 15, 2013
Elysian Brewing would like to introduce a new series to their collection.
The Oddland Series will produce brews intermittently that will feature strage ingredients. Expect to see everything from peppercorns to cardamom and all in-between. This will be a collaborative effort with Seattle artist Jim Woodring.
“Here’s how the whole thing works. Head Brewer Dick Cantwell and his brainstormy gang get an idea; they run it by Woodring, who sketches his two cents’ worth and sends it on back; then the recipe is tweaked, the ingredients secured, suggestions made as to visual format, and away we all go, to Oddland.”
The first beer in the series, Peppercorn Saison, will launch mid-May and features white, green, black, and pink peppercorns.
Availability: 22oz bottles
Arrival: May 2013
