Surly Brewing’s Pentagram arrives next week. Pentagram is an American wild ale aged in wine barrels. Pentagram made an appearance at the Great American Beer Fest last fall, and brewer Todd Haug mentioned it will all but become a yearly release.
100% Brettanomyces Dark beer fermented stainless and aged in used red wine barrels. “Brett” is a unique yeast strain that produces flavors that would be considered offensive if they were not intentional. Flavors of sour cherry, tobacco, oak and classic “Brett” barnyard funkbalanced by dark munich mall chewiness.
14,000 bottles will be dispersed into Surly markets next week. Party this Sunday. This is your heads up.
