Help Novel Brewing Co. kick off the 2019 Beer Week with special beer releases, including a few limited bottle releases, and some of your past favorites from our cellar! All beers listed below go on tap, and bottles will be on sale starting at Noon.
NEW BEER RELEASE:
Interpunct :: Juicy IPA
ABV: 6.8% Hops: NZ Organic Nelson
Like a run on sentence with interpuncts between every word, this juicy IPA is loaded with Nelson hops, leaving no moment to breath in the empty space--just a soft pillowy deluge of passionfruit and gooseberry to carry you to the end.
BOTTLE RELEASES (limited number)
Beer Hoarder :: Barrel Aged Imperial Stout aged in Heaven Hill bourbon / whiskey barrels with local honey, Madagascar vanilla beans, TCHO cocoa nibs, Vietnamese cinnamon, and habanero chiles.
ABV: 11% Hops: UK Target, UK Fuggle
You know who you are. Yeah you. Get ready to hoard the s**t out of this. This beer was made for you. We asked some of our regulars what they thought would make for the most hoard friendly beer. The result is this incredibly bold yet balanced barrel aged imperial stout with a vanilla, honey and chocolate drenched body, cinnamon spice up front, and a happy habanero heat to finish the sipping sensation.
Simulacrux :: Barrel Aged Belgian-style Quadrupel Sour Ale w/ Red Tart Cherries
ABV: 12% Hops: UK Target, GR Hallertauer Mittelfruh
Like tumbling down the rabbit hole on a psychedelic adventure, Simulacrux will make you wonder, “Is this real or is it just fantasy?” We took Simulacra, our Belgian-style Quad, and barrel aged it with an early version of our house mixed fermentation culture for twelve months, then aged it on red tart cherries. This beer has compound notes of dark fruit, cherry, malty molasses, and bubble gum, with a hint of funk and mild tartness.
Lexicon :: Barrel Aged Mixed Fermentation Saison w/ Blackberry
ABV: 7.0% Hops: UK Golding
Brettanomyces, lactobacillus, lactic acid, saccharomyces, are just a few of the words that make up our brewing lexicon and are present in this mixed fermentation’s vocabulary. Lexicon spent 12 months in oak barrels with an early version of our house mixed fermentation culture, and then was aged with blackberries in stainless steel.
Note: These beers will also be on tap in the tasting room.
FROM THE CELLAR:
Peach Don’t Preach  :: Golden Sour Ale
ABV: 5.2% Hops: Willamette
A golden ale wood fermented in two red wine barrels of unknown origin with a different Belgian yeast in each barrel, along with multiple brett strains, lacto, and pedio. The beer remained in the barrel after fermentation for a little more than 6 months before getting blended together in a stainless steel tank, where it matured on peaches.
Imperial Affliction  :: Imperial Stout aged in rum barrels with toasted coconut
ABV: 10.4 % Hops: UK Fuggle, UK Target
In 2018, Imperial Affliction was aged in rum barrels from Barbados for three months afflicting a bold imperial stout with roast, coffee, and deep dark chocolate goodness. Sip upon sip will torment your senses with a full body of charred oak, caramel, molasses, and enough tropical rum and coconut to twist your mind into thinking you want more.
