Lost Abbey’s Cuvee de Tomme will be draft-only this year. Some packaging restraints have prevented the beer from being released in bottles.
“We had a few packaging constraints near the end of this year so we just didn’t have the means to get Cuvee into bottles” said Tomme Arthur, Co-founder and Chief Operating Owner of The Lost Abbey. “But the good news is we’ll have more kegs and be able to spread the wealth to some territories that have never had it in years past.”
Lost Abbey Cuvee de Tomme is a blend of Judgement Day (quad with raisins) aged in bourbon, brandy, and red wine barrels with Brettanomyces yeast. Tart cherries also give the beer that little extra complexity. Tommy Arthur came up with the recipe in 1999.
A plus side to this packaging change – there will be more kegs for the brewery’s entire distribution network.
