Odyssey – Belgian Dark Wheat, 10% ABV. Barrel Aged. In it’s second year. Partially aged in Medium toast oak, another in stainless steel fermenters for 6 months. Both are then blended together. Bottle conditioned with more yeast and Belgian Candi sugar.
Interlude – American Wild Ale, 9.5 ABV. New release by Allagash. Aged in French merlot and sirah barrels. Belgian style ale. House strain of Brettanomyces yeast. Bottle conditioned. Unforgettable.
Four – Quad, 10% ABV. Brewed with four malts, four hops, four sugars, and Belgian yeast strain. Sugars include Light & Dark candi sugars, light golden molasses and date sugar. Re fermented with 3 different strains, and then bottle fermented with a fourth in the cellar. Life changing.
Each of these beers retail around 8-10 dollars a glass, close to 20.00 for a 750 ML corked and caged bottle. Cypress brought in a true cheese head to design pairings with these elegant Allagash beers. For $30 you get 3 beers and 3 cheese courses. Hopefully you see the deal here. It would cost you what I figure to be about $80 to pull this off at home.
Pairings begin at 6pm today – 6/22.
