Halcyon Barrel House - Wintermute
Berry, dry, funk
Brett Brut I.P.A.• 6.7% ABV
We love dry beer at Halcyon, so making a Brut I.P.A. was right up our alley. We allowed for two full months of barrel fermentation with our house mix of brett to create a drying effect without enzymes, then dry-hopped with mosaic for an aromatic matrix of berries, fruit and funk.
Wintermute Brut I.P.A. draws on our core brett I.P.A. malt profile, but is refined to produce the reduced body and sweetness that's characteristic of the Brut I.P.A. style. Each barrel of Wintermute is singly fermented, then united for a blend that is the sum total of the works.
Halcyon Barrel House is a new branch on the Beau's family tree. New world brewing, patiently rooted in the old world traditions of mixed fermentation and aging in wood barrels, and bottle or keg conditioning.
