PORT MOODY, BC – Coalesce Brewing – the independent brewing project set up by Ryan Voigt of Twin Sails Brewing to brew mixed fermentation and wood aged beers – has announced details of its latest beer.
Salaryman (6.8% abv) is described as follows:
We brewed Salaryman with a simple base of Mecca Grade Pelton and Rimrock Rye malt, hopped it delicately with aged hops in the kettle and fermented and matured the beer in Okanagan Chardonnay barrels with an expressive mixed culture of Saccharomyces, Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, and Pediococcus. After six months in oak we added 10kg of local raw wildflower honey directly into each barrel and allowed the beer to referment to dryness before conditioning the beer naturally in the bottle. Nimble and dry this beer exhibits notes of fresh beeswax, orchard flowers and lime zest. This is our most acid driven release to date, but still maintains an elegant balance and softness on the palate.
Salaryman will be be released at Twin Sails tomorrow (March 10th) at 12:00 noon in limited run of 30 cases x 500 ml bottles. It will retail for $12/bottle with a limit of 6 bottles per customer, and a keg-conditioned version will also be available on tap while supplies last.
