Nebraska Brewing Company (Papillion, NE) is adding to beers to their Inception Series this month. What was meant to be just one beer is now to series entries. In the end, the barrels you age the beer in have the final say. The base beer is a saison, brewed with rose hips, hibiscus, and cherry juice, then aged in a chardonnay barrel. Indians, the other entry, got a little funky in the barrel. Cowboys didn’t, prompting the two releases. Poking fun at the perception that Nebraska is still like the wild west, they dubbed these two Cowboys & Indians.
Availability: 750 ml bottles
Arrival: Mid May, 2013
Nebraska Brewing Company (Papillion, NE) is adding to beers to their Inception Series this month. Ironically, there was only meant to be one beer. However the barrels they were aging in didn’t think the same way. The base beer is a saison, brewed with rose hips, hibiscus, and cherry juice, then aged in a chardonnay barrel. The brewery tells us this one got a little funky. Poking fun at the perception that Nebraska is still like the wild west, they dubbed these two Cowboys & Indians.
Nebraska Brewing Company has created an “yet to be named” brew for the Omaha Stormchasers Minor League baseball team. Owner Kim Kavaluk chats about this summery creation.
A one-off in the Inception Series, we aged a robust Belgian-style Quad in French Oak Cognac barrels which have been in use for over 5 decades. The Belgian nose meshes with the sweet character to create a experience entirely unique.
