This Thursday at 4pm when the Tasting Room opens, we will be releasing Blend 3 of Viking Metal – a gin barrel-aged ale with smoked malt, juniper, and sweet gale.
For this beer, we brewed the base beer Gotlandsdricka using Hill Country well water, smoked malted barley, oak smoked wheat, and flaked rye. Juniper berries and myrica gale were added at the boil. We then let this ferment in our stainless-steel tank with our mixed culture of native yeasts and bacteria, then transferred it to rest in Old Tom Gin barrels from Ransom Spirits.
Viking Metal Blend 3 has an ABV of 8.3%. It will be available by the glass and in bottles to go ($22/750mL). Around 2,800 bottles are available. There is no bottle limit.
