EDMONTON, AB – Blind Enthusiasm Brewing has announced the upcoming release of the first beer from its Spontaneous Fermentation program.
Spontaneous Manifesto (6.8% abv):
A labour of love six years in the making, Spontaneous Manifesto marks a milestone as The Monolith’s inaugural 100% Spontaneous Fermentation release. Made using historical methods developed in Belgium over generations, this blend of equal proportions of 1, 2 & 3 year barrels inoculated only by the air of Edmonton is our quintessential Spontaneous Fermentation blend.
While working at Cantillon in Brussels, The Monolith Head Brewer, Doug Checknita, had the opportunity to learn age-old techniques used in traditional Lambic brewing. Doug says, “The vision when returning home to run The Monolith was to combine my new knowledge of traditional techniques with modern technology and scientific method to push boundaries when making our Spontaneous beer. I believe we’ve definitely succeeded with Spontaneous Manifesto.”
Spontaneous Manifesto will be launched at Blind Enthusiasm’s Barrel Fest, a celebration of barrel-aged and barrel-fermented beer taking place on Saturday September 23rd at Ritchie Park in Edmonton.
