Taking a good bit of us by surprise – Anchorage Brewing Company (Anchorage, AK) officially has beers on the shelf in Georgia. White Out Wit, and Galaxy White IPA are the first offerings. The beers come through Savannah Distributing.
Anchorage was founded by Gabe Fletcher, opening early last year. The brewery specializes in barrel fermentation and brettanoymyces yeasts. (Wild & funky, baby!)
More on the first beers:
White Out Wit – Witbier,6.5% ABV, 20 IBUs. Aged in Chardonnay barrels
Unique to the north and feared by man and beast, the WHITEOUT comes without warning.
With quiet ferocity, how quickly this force erases the sensations and reduces any creature to its most basic elements. When enveloped in one, sight, sound and even tactile sensation are ripped away, as snowflakes in motion swallow all sense of being, leaving one to cower, hunker down and wait it out, hoping that it passes quickly or that the end is merciful. Of variable and unknown duration minutes seem like eternity in a whiteout.
Ale brewed with Galaxy hops, coriander, kumquats, and peppercorns. Fermented and aged in French oak foudres with a wit yeast. Dry hopped with Galaxy hops. Bottle conditioned with brettanomyces and wine yeast. Drink fresh or age to bring out the funk.
Both are available in 750’s
