Fullsteam Igor Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout
Fullsteam Brewery (Durham, NC) has a beer series that features locally “foraged” ingredients from North Carolina. Ingredient include fruits, vegetables, grains, even yeast.
Quest Science did a little video piece on the Forager Series, combining the Forager, and the brewer.
Fullsteam Brewery will soon be taking year round offering Cack-A-Lacky to cans. The ginger pale was first launched on tap in January of this year. This described “refreshing, hoppy, and zippy” pale ale is brewed in partnership with Cackalacky Hot Sauces out of Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
Fullsteam has some high hopes for this beer. The brewery hopes Cack-A-Lacky will soon become a nationally known beer. This “southern” pale ale uses both fresh and candied ginger for it’s unique flavor. If you currently have Fullsteam on tap in your hood, you might have Cack-A-Lacky now. Soon you will take some home in cans.
Note: CACKALACKYâ„¢ contains none of the “famously original” extraordinary spiced condiment made from sweet potatoes created a decade ago and still produced in Chapel Hill. (True, and funny.)
Fullsteam Brewery (Durham, NC) brewed a special beer in December for the sold out Raleigh Rare Beer Tasting and 2013 Brewvival in Charleston, South Carolina. The beer? A “Kentucky Common” brewed with all local grain, including rye and corn. A sour mash was used to brew the common, meaning they soaked the fermentables out of the grain and allowed in to sit for a couple of days to sour. Mimicked (loosely) the same way one would make sour mash whiskey. If you attend either festival, don’t miss this brew.
