Just a bit more on the upcoming Alesmith/ Cigar City Brewing collaboration, Dubbel Dare. The brewery travelled down to Tampa recently to create a tropical collaboration.
The result is this 80’s throwback, Dubbel Dare suitable for a physical challenge. When you think about Florida, you think beaches right? Coconuts, palm trees, etc? There’s the inspiration for a tropical Belgian-style dubbel. Coconut palm sugar was used in place of candi sugar. Deglet Noor dates and Black Mission figs were added to the fermentation. An abbey yeast strain rounds out the flavor. Now you have a “dubbel coast” collaboration.
Cigar City will bottle this in 750ml bottles for Florida distribution.
Style: Dubbel (w/ Coconut Palm Sugar, Deglet Noor Dates, Black Mission Figs)
