Three Taverns Helm’s Deep returns to the Decatur, Georgia brewery’s lineup again on December 17th.
This imperial stout was initially a long time coming. Ahead of the original release in 2016, the crew at Three Taverns has been aging this monster in various bourbon barrels, looking for the perfect oaky compliment.
The 2016 edition found a perfect pairing in 8 year old Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. Helm’s Deep is their “thickest and chewiest beer to date” according to brewery founder Brian Purcell. (Note: we believe this year’s edition is also aged in 8 year barrels.)
Long hidden in the deep shadows of eight-year-old bourbon barrels, this full-bodied imperial stout emerges thick as the blackest night. An intestinal dark malt complexity with notes of chocolate and vanilla leads to a labyrinth of flavors saturated in vanilla and oak.
750 milliliter bottles of Three Taverns Helm’s Deep will be available starting at 3 pm at the brewery, and has not sold out by close on Sunday evening.
‘Van Ginderachter studied Chemistry at the University of Ghent before interning with his uncle Peter Bouckaert, a legend at U.S. based New Belgium, and now Purpose Brewing and Cellars in Fort Collins, Colorado. At the close of his internship, Joran returned to Belgium, ultimately co-founding Brouwers Verzet in 2011. The creativity and passion in the American industry brought Joran to Three Taverns, where he has been overseeing the day to day operations, as well as creating the brewery’s wild ale program.
Unfortunately, not everything goes as planned. For reasons not immediately disclosed, Joran Van Ginderachter has departed Three Taverns. Just a few miles away, Monday Night Brewing has stepped in to help.
Peter Kiley, head brewer at Monday Night tells Beer Street Journal that this move is intended to keep extraordinary talent in Georgia. “We know business can be complicated sometimes. Joran is a good friend to us, and an integral part of the brewing community in Georgia,” Kiley said.
This move over to Monday Night is a temporary one. Joran and close friends Shawn Bainbridge and Tim Kilic
will open Halfway Crooks Brewing and Blending in Atlanta in 2018. Expect everything from pilsners to saisons and wild ales from the trio.
In the meantime, don’t be surprised if you see Van Ginderachter brewing at Monday Night or running around the brewery’s new “Garage” location.
“Thanks to a must needed change in Georgia beer laws, the state is poised for growth. We want to keep talent like Joran’s here with us, and we are extremely excited. Even if it’s just for a little while,” said Kiley.
In an interesting, and unrelated twist, brewer Adam Bishop has parted ways with Monday Night. Co-founder Jonathan Baker tells Beer Street Journal that his departure is unrelated to the arrival of Joran.
“It’s just really weird timing,” said Baker.
This beer was a massive hit at the 2017 Shelton Brothers Festival in Atlanta. On September 1st, Three Taverns German Chocolate Helm’s Deep will be found in bottles for the first time.
Another strong entry in Beer Street Journal’s highly unofficial “dessert beer” category, Three Taverns German Chocolate Helm’s Deep definitely delivers. The 13% alcohol by volume imperial stout has been aging in Sherry barrels and infused with coconut and espresso coffee. Calories don’t count here.
Infused with espresso and toasted coconut before aging in Sherry barrels, this variant of Helm’s Deep produces flavors of German chocolate cake drizzled with coffee and rich Sherry sweetness.
Three Taverns German Chocolate Helm’s Deep will be available in 750-milliliter bottles at the brewery on September 1st.
