Blind Enthusiasm Brewing and Strathcona Spirits Releasing Kook Birds Gin Barrel Aged Ale

EDMONTON, AB – Blind Enthusiasm Brewing has announced the release of a new collaboration with Strathcona Spirits.

Kook Birds (7.3% abv) is described as follows:

This collaboration started with a Cognac puncheon shipped from France. After some clever bartering Strathcona Spirits ended up with the puncheon and Blind Enthusiasm got five freshly emptied Pinot Gin barrels in return. Things got kooky when we put our Uncharted Citra into the Pinot Gin barrels. The result is a delicious golden beer with a herbal and orange citrus attack followed by a balanced blast of gin. It finishes with lingering overripe fruit.

Kook Birds will be released in 375 ml and 750 ml bottles at Blind Enthusiasm’s Ritchie Market location and online shop this Friday November 6th. It will also be available for bottle pours at Biera, and is the featured beer in this week’s edition of the Biera Box along with sourdough focaccia, paired cheeses, condiments and more.
