Monday Night Spirit Animal takes aim at the brewery’s elite Black Tie Series in 2015. Important to note, this beer is a sour.
Monday Night’s Black Tie Series has featured medal winning Bourbon Barrel Aged Drafty Kilt (a scotch ale), Master Splinter (Imperial red ale) and Hipster Fresh Hop Harvest, just to name a few. A sour beer changes the game a bit.
Crouching below the surface, hidden in the bubbles, prowling in the tang of the yeast of Spirit Animal, is a wolf. Wild and untamed, this sour ale echoes a time when beer was fermented in the open air in the moonlight.
This wolf is hungry, and he’s preying on your tastebuds. Prepare to be smote. Smiled. Smitten. Whatever.
Monday Night Spirit Animal is aged on toasted French oak and rose hips. Available in 22oz bottles. Monday Night tells Beer Street Journal that Spirit Animal is nearly ready, and will be shooting for an early July release.
A Beer Street Journal video short is coming soon.
