NEW RELEASE: Shmaltz Vertical Jewbelation

I hope you were lucky enough to get one of Shmaltz Brewing’s Jewbelation Hanukkah gift packs.   The pack contained each one of the Jewbelation beers they have brewed, from Jewbelation 8-14.  (But that’s only 7 nights!) That is true, oh voice in my head.  The 8th night was a special “cuvee” of sorts.  Jeremy Cowan and his brewing team blended 8-14 together, and then aged the blend in Sazerac rye barrels for 6 months.  The result is outstanding.  I mean outstanding.  So good, Shmaltz found it fitting to release this beer in 22 oz bomber too.  Jewbelation 8 was a brewed with 8 hops, 8 malts, 8% ABV.  Each year added a hop, malt, and abv percentage.   Expect a lot of flavor. You’ve been warned.

Style: American Strong Ale (barrel aged)

Taste Expectations: Dark fruits, chocolate, roasted malts, oak, whiskey, and light vanilla.

Availability: 22oz Bombers. Draft. Special release through the rest of 2010.

10.5% ABV
