Join us for a special night at Archetype Brewing. Ticket-holders will get a commemorative Archetype tasting glass and 5 oz pours of 4 aged Archetype beers. Additional tastings can be purchased at the event. These beers are our "top shelf" specialty brews, some have aged for over a year, and we're finally ready to tap them. Along with the beer, we'll have sliced-on-the-spot meats from Hickory Nut Gap Farm, and aged cheeses from Looking Glass Creamery. Brewer Steven Anan will be there hanging out, discussing the beers and methods, and answering any questions drinkers might have. Tickets can be purchased in advance through the link below.
Nameless Light Brett IPA - 10 months - Stainless - 6.7% ABV
Brewed with 100% Brett yeast, this IPA is floral and funky. You’ll pick up notes of lilies, spices, earthy pine and woody evergreen with a tropical bouquet finish of guava, pineapple, grapefruit, and lemon zest. Over time, the hop flavor has mellowed, and the Brett characteristics have continued to develop. The result is a rustic, complex beer that defies style parameters.
Walk the Earth Blend no. 1 - 10 months - French Oak and Stainless - 8.0% ABV
Barrel-Aged Brett Saison dry-hopped with Chinook and Saaz hops. This beautifully complex and funky fare has notes of plum, cranberry, honeysuckle and sourdough with a hint of spice, ending with a lovely vanilla oak finish. The flavors change and develop as the beer warms up to room temperature, so this is a sippin’ beer.
Belgian Strong - 12 months - Stainless - 11.2% ABV
This is a beer close to our hearts. First brewed last fall, it’s been aging to perfection for a whole year, and just keeps getting better. Big berry bouquet (cranberry, tart cherry, blueberry) with notes of figs, raisins, caramelized sugars, and Belgian candi syrup. Medium-bodied and dry finish makes this a deceptively drinkable strong ale, you’ll be transported to a tiny, stone-walled bar in rural Belgium as you drink it.
Devil’s Nest Belgian Tripel - 15 months - French Oak and Stainless - 10.2% ABV
Primary fermentation is with our house Belgian yeast strain, and then the batch undergoes secondary Brettanomyces fermentation in oak for 6 months. This beer is a nod to the old days, beautifully complex, a little funky and full of flavor. You'll pick up on honey, white wine and molasses, as well as fruity notes of tart cherry and blackberries, finishing up with lovely oak vanillins from the barrel.
