In an ever calcifying craft brewing environment hell bent (and sometimes rightfully so) on innovation, we often find inspiration in brewing traditions of old.
Trappist ales were some of the first beers that expanded our horizons so we pay homage to these classic styles and their monastic adherence to quality with Tōbetsu, our new series of Trappist Inspired Ales.
Tōbetsu, our new series of Trappist Inspired Ales, seeks to strengthen our connection to the varied Trappist ales that first made us wonder about beer’s manifold potential.
Tōbetsu Blond is our traditional take on a Trappist Inspired Blond Ale, brewed with specialty sourced, whole cone Saaz hops. Its phenols, ester profile, and layered malt character play in tandem with those noble hops in the forefront to provide notes of clove, baked apricot, and spice.
