[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.
