Spike & Jerome’s Ale Arriving Any Day…

Spike Jeromes Ale

Spike Jerome's Ale

[Update] – Label now available.  Beer arriving soon.

Any day now on the debut of this collaboration – Spike & Jerome’s Ale.  In February, Terrapin travelled to Jura, Switzerland and collaborated with Brasserie Franches Montagnes.  (Actually, they were already on a European beer tour.)  In the cold of winter, the two breweries created a rye based barleywine.

The barleywine — “Spike & Jerome’s Ale” is actually derived from 20% rye, 80% malted barley.   The beer has been aging in rum barrels in Switzerland.  S & J was expected by the end of June, but now any day.

Availability: 330ml swing top bottles BFM bottles (July). Draft (Late June).  Limited to 20 kegs, 300 cases of bottles.

10% ABV

Also, recently the Terrapin & Heavy Seas family suffered a loss of a loved one.  A senseless tragedy that makes me sick to my stomach.  My thoughts are with them during this difficult time.
