Your Devil’s Milk Fix Returns This Month

It’s getting cooler. You need a beer with a boozy backbone to it. Duclaw Brewing Co’s barleywine returns this month.  It is brewed in July, aggressively dry hopped, and aged until the November release.  On sale starting 11/14/12.

Devil’s Milk is an American-style Barley Wine. This beer exhibits a wealth of fruit flavors, from pears to plums to raisins. Devil’s Milk is dry hopped (hops added after fermentation) for a strong bite that balances its big malt backbone. Served in a snifter glass because of the high abv, barley wines are perfect as a relaxing “after-dinner” drink or nitecap.

Style: Barleywine
Changes each year
Pale malt, Wheat malt, Aromatic malt, Crystal malt, Special malt

10.5% ABV, 66 IBUs

New Belgium Fears Wildfire Taste In Local Water [Video]

New Belgium Brewing is facing a new issue in the brewing process. Water contamination. Runoff from the Colorado wildfires has seeped into the Poudre River that the Fort Collins based brewery uses. In the meantime, New Belgium has been using water from Larimer County.

The brewery was recently informed that they might have to go back to using the tainted river water. Obviously, that water would be unusable for brewing. New Belgium is currently working on a solution. There’s a rauch beer joke in this story somewhere. [Thanks @RhizomePro]
