Terrapin & Nogne O To Collaborate This Winter

Nøgne Ø & Terrapin Brewing will be collaborating this coming February.  Spike Buckowski & Dustin Watts of Terrapin are planning to fly over to Norway in the winter to create this collaboration ale.  Right now the only details about this beer — Spike wants to use rye malt.

Per Owen Ogletree, Brewtopia:

Kjetil from Nøgne Ø –  “I like rye a lot too. We use it in six or eight of our beers. Up to this point, we have only used pale rye malt, but recently we received our first shipment of crystal rye malt, which we plan to use in our main Christmas ale for this season. I guess Nøgne Ø’s signature is that we are somewhat “mid-Atlantic” in our profile — conservative British and Belgian grains, and liberal use of American hops. In Norway we are considered to be extremely hop oriented. In the US our beers are considered fairly malty.”

Release Date: TBD, 2012

Mikkeller, Nogne-O, BrewDog Make Black Tokyo Horizon

BrewDog Growlers

Black Toyko Horizon

Brewdog’s Hop Propaganda revealed this little number.  Mikkeller, Nogne-O & BrewDog crossed paths to brew this little number…

We now have a tiny amount of Black Tokyo Horizon ready to rock.

This collaborative beer was created when the paths of Mikkeller, Nogne-Ø, and BrewDog merged. It is an equal combination of ideas and inspiration extracted from each brewery’s respective huge stouts, Black, Dark Horizon, and Tokyo*.

With loads of dark malts and prodigious hops, this ultimate imperial stout yields an aura of mystery and adventure, inspiring imaginations and challenging convention and jaded orthodoxy.

This is an unearthing; this is the Black Tokyo Horizon. 

Sure to hit the BrewDog store soon.  Also – new steel 2.5 pint growlers…
