A Naughty Girl Collaboration

Naughty Girl Small

Another Struise U.S. collaboration(s) is about to be unleashed on the drinking world – Naughty Girl.  Urbain Coutteau of De Struise travelled to Louisville, Kentucky and visited with Tyler Trotter & Lori Beck.  The duo own Louisville Beer Store & Holy Grale in the city.  The visit gave a rise to 2 collaborations with Struise, brewed at each of New Albanian Brewing’s locations across the Ohio River in Indiana.   You’ll meet collaboration #2 soon.  The first: Naughty Girl.

Naughty Girl was brewed at the Bank Street location on May 8, 2011.  A Belgian IPA.

It started out as a Belgo-American ménage a trois, but then the brewers arrived and transformed the trans-oceanic affair into a beery love pentangle.   The collaborative minds at Louisville Beer Store, De Struise Brouwers and New Albanian Brewing Company offer this, a willfully disobedient Blonde India Pale  Ale with a  hop on her shoulder.

Style: Belgian IPA

Hops: Hops: Cascade in the mash (13 lbs whole), two bittering additions of Galena, two middle additions of Golding, late addition of Cascade, Cascade hops (15 lbs pellet) for warm dry-hopping

Malts: Rahr 2-Row, Rahr Premium Pils, Castle (Belgian) Aromatic, CaraPils

Yeast: De Struise House Ale

6% ABV, 69 IBUs

Shark Pants! Ooh Ha Ha

3 Floyds Brewing & De Struise from (Ostveleteren, Belgium) got together recently and brewed a big Belgian Style imperial IPA.  Shark Pants! Is the name, brewed in honor of Rich Sheppard an employee of 3 Floyds that sadly passed away in 2001.

3 Floyds Chats About:
Shark Pants! -This beer is the combined effort of Urbain from De Struise Brouwers and Three Floyds Brewing Co.  On the 3rd of May Urbain came to our Indiana brewery and we created an 8.7% abv ale using the Struise house yeast with some medium crystal malts and a portion of oats at a calculated 260 IBUs.  Urbain will brew the same beer at Struise when the Three Floyds crew travels to Belgium at the end of this month.  Although it was a great time and a honor to brew with Urbain, there is a somber note to this beer.  Our friend and employee Rich Sheppard passed away on April 11, 2011.  This beer is made to honor his memory with a portion of the proceeds going to his family. Always remember, live a Rich life.

Small Animal…Big Machine

Half Acre Brewing
(Chicago, IL) just brewed with Pipeworks Brewing (Chicago, IL) and De Struise (Ostveleteren, Belgium). The beer is called “Small Animal…Big Machine”.  Not entirely sure the name origin, but the beer is brewed with cherries & currants.

From HA:
This beer is called Small Animal Big Machine. I would say that each influence had a chance to impact this beer and the result will be something of its own. We did a traditional sour mash, used Urbain’s yeast from Belgium and are incorporating a slew of fruit. This beer will be here soon.

Availability: 22oz bombers.  Chicago area.

8.5% ABV
