Recently, Stillwater Artisanal Ales and Evil Twin Brewing, (2 “gyspy brewers”) travelled to Escondido, California to collaborate with Stone Brewing Co. The triumvirate pulled off The Perfect Crime. The result is a smokey black saison that really fits the mysterious nature of these traveling breweries.
I first heard the term “gypsy brewer” in reference to Mikkel Borg-Bjergso, back in 2008, when we brewed our very first collaboration beer with Mikkel and Peter Zien of AleSmith. And now we are thrilled to welcome two more famous gypsy brewers to our brewery: Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergso of Evil Twin Brewing ( Mikkel’s brother– hence the name) and Brian Strumke of Stillwater Artisanal Ales. Jenne and Brian have brewed together before, and both have excellent pedigrees in brewing unique Belgian- inspired beers. Their shady influence was felt throughout the brewing of this mysterious block beer, and we were excited to be able to brew it. – Mitch Steele
