We’re excited to announce that this Friday at 4pm, we will be releasing Deimos’ Companion – a farmhouse ale brewed with papalo and refermented with lime juice and zest. This beer is part of a collaboration with our friends and neighbors, Revolution Spirits, who distilled Phobos’ Companion – a spirit intended to be blended with Deimos’ Companion to create a beer cocktail. Both the beer and the spirit are meant to stand on their own but when combined together, create an enhanced experience inspired by a michelada.
We have worked with Revolution Spirits in the past. For this project, we decided to essentially deconstruct a cocktail, and what we landed on was the michelada which is most often made with Mexican beer, salt, lime, hot sauce or chile flakes, and Worcestershire sauce or Clamato.
Our beer and Revolution’s spirit each cover different flavor components of a michelada. Deimos’ Companion is meant to exhibit the beer and lime components while Phobos’ Companion provides spice from the chile peppers and the flavors often found in Clamato or Worcestershire. Phobos' companion is infused with three different chiles (arbol, cascabel, and pasilla), horseradish, black peppercorns, celery seed, and arame (a type of seaweed).
