Westbrook Lemon Cucumber Gose could be released in cans in the near future.
The Mount Pleasant, South Carolina based brewery’s base Gose might be one of the most popular of the style in the southeast. It was first released in 2012, and once it was canned, really flew off the shelves.
That popular release gave rise to a new variant – Key Lime Pie Gose, inspired by the dessert.
It looks like Westbrook Lemon Cucumber Gose is on the horizon in cans, a beer that just screams warmer weather. Expect a tart gose with hints of lemon and cucumber, in a 12-ounce, 4% alcohol by volume package. This beer has already made an appearance on draft.
Enjoy the cool and refreshing flavors of lemon and cucumber by the pool, as the beach, in the shower, in bed, in the bathroom, in the living room, at breakfast, at lunch, at the spa, on a walk, after a run… you get the idea.
Westbrook Lemon Cucumber Gose has not been formally announced by the brewery.
Evil Twin Double Barrel Aged Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break, a double-barreled variant of the epic mash-up release, is now available in bottles.
This beer is a mashup that started off the coast of South Carolina. Mount Pleasant, South Carolina’s Westbrook Brewing was also one of the U.S. homes to Evil Twin Brewing on a contract basis. Each of the two breweries have a very popular dessert-style beer offering. Evil Twin’s is Biscotti Break, an imperial stout with flavors mimicking the coffee shop dessert. Westbrook celebrated an anniversary a few years ago with Mexican Cake Imperial Stout. As it turns out, that beer was so popular the brewery has been releasing it annually ever since.
Since both beers were brewed in the same house by friends, last year Evil Twin and Westbrook combined the two together creating Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break. The best of both worlds in under one cap. Needless to say, your palate had a lot to sort out with each beautiful sip.
Popping up now is the epic mashup that has seen multiple barrels – Evil Twin Double Barrel Aged Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break.
The imperial stout brewed with coffee, cinnamon, almonds, cocoa nibs, vanilla and habanero peppers has been resting in both bourbon and marsala wine barrels, resulting in an even more complex beer than before. It’s enough to make any barrel-aged beer fan sweat.
Evil Twin Double Barrel Aged Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break will be available in 22-ounce bottles in very limited quantities. The first bottles surfaced around Halloween.
Joining this double barrel bottle of ridiculous is Evil Twin Maple Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break.
Evil Twin Maple Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break debuts as October comes to a close.
What started with two highly sought after beers: Evil Twin Biscotti Break and Westbrook Brewing’s Mexican Cake Imperial Stout. Since Evil Twin was gypsy brewing until Westbrook’s roof, the brewery’s opted to combine the two beers into one beast of a beer – Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break. The result was dark, bold and complex.
Now some barrel-aged variants will be available to fans – Double Barrel Aged Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break, aged in Marsala wine and bourbon barrels, and Evil Twin Maple Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break.
The latter uses the base mash-up, an imperial stout brewed with coffee, cinnamon, almonds, cocoa nibs, vanilla and habanero peppers, aged in maple bourbon barrels. A mouthful? Yes. Sound delicious? Of course.
Evil Twin Maple Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break will be available in 22-ounce wax top bottles for the first time in the last week of October.
Westbrook 7th Anniversary, celebrating the brewery’s 7th birthday, is coming soon.
Celebrating birthdays is how famed Westbrook Mexican Cake got its start. It was originally brewed to celebrate a milestone, and fan demand caused to be an annual release. (Now with barrel-aged variants.)
It would seem Mount Pleasant, South Carolina based brewery loves dessert beer when it comes to anniversary releases. Westbrook 7th Anniversary is first an foremost an imperial stout that is all about chocolate. Think of it like liquid cake.
For our 7th anniversary beer, we went big on the chocolate and added a little sea salt to make it interesting. Luscious notes o liquid cocoa and a smooth salinity make this beer deliciously decadent.
Westbrook 7th Anniversary will be available in 22-ounce bottles. Each of the anniversary releases have debuted around January in the past.
Westbrook Citrus Redacted is on the horizon by the Mt Pleasant, South Carolina based brewery.
This new imperial IPA is described as being big on citrus hops, and citrus fruits. There are ninjas on the label, which makes us think of a Pipeworks beer – Citra Ninja. (Perhaps that’s the joke?) Thus…. “redacted”.
This beer combines three of our favorite things: juicy fresh-squeezed hops, zesty and bright citrus fruits, and a name that doesn’t make any sense unless you know the story behind it. Enjoy!
Westbrook Citrus Redacted will be available in 16-ounce bottles. The brewery has not officially announced this release.
Style: Imperial IPA (w/ Citrus)
Availability: 16oz Cans
Westbrook Key Lime Pie Gose has been canned once again this week, shipping soon from the Mount Pleasant, South Carolina brewery.
Regular Westbrook Gose (simply called Gose) debuted in 2012 and is still fairly hard for stores to keep in stock years later. Key Lime Pie Gose is no different. You say the word pie and people come running.
The slightly sour beer is brewed with coriander and sea salt, plus a touch of key lime juice.
Fans of the the brewery’s original gose will definitely find the resemblance in Key Lime. When cold (like, refrigerator cold), the beer has a strong lime tartness. Key lime juice is the boss. As the beer warms up a bit, there is some hints of graham cracker. Or… we could be completely making that part up. We can’t stop thinking about pie. It does become more pie-like as it gets warmer. Or we maybe we just want pie.
Westbrook Key Lime Pie Gose will be available again in 12 ounce cans, and draft, as a limited seasonal.
Evil Twin Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break. Meet the mashup of two highly sought after beers that is sure to instill panic in the beer geeks. Let the sweating commence.
Evil Twin, who is building a brewery on their own in New York, has been contract brewing for years at Westbrook Brewing in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina – the birthplace of Westbrook’s Mexican Cake. “Cake” started out as a way to mark the brewery’s anniversary. Morgan and Edward Westbrook brewed an imperial stout with cocoa nibs, vanilla beans, cinnamon sticks, and fresh habanero peppers. Since then, the beer has become a hot commodity, selling in the secondary market for hundreds of dollars. Don’t even ask how much beer traders are asking for barrel-aged variants.
Then there’s Evil Twin Biscotti Break. As the name suggests, this imperial stout mimics the coffee shop dessert, brewed with vanilla and almond, and coffee.
Evil Twin Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break slams together the best of both those beers. An imperial stout brewed with coffee, cinnamon, almonds, cocoa nibs, vanilla and habanero peppers. Both beers are awesome treats.
The result? An even bigger beer. Two dessert beers meeting in one glass could be overwhelming. Not in this case. As the beer warms, cinnamon chocolate and vanilla start to pop. Subtle elements of the two beer threads are far from a challenge to find in each sip. The only thing subtle here are the peppers. Two epic beers in one bottle. We thought only shampoo and conditioner could pull that off.
Evil Twin Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break is a 22 ounce limited release.
