Tank Bender is our first foray into the rare style known as eisbock. This style involves freezing water off the beer, resulting in ultra-concentrated flavor, deeper body and, in our case, a bent tank from collapsing ice. A liberal addition of Munich malt highlights the toasty and dark fruit notes while a stay in bourbon barrels tames those intense flavors. Tank Bender comes in at 15% ABV.
We will be selling special Tank Bender bottles and gift sets on-site at the brewery. They will be sold near our Education entrance off of Williams St. beginning at 10am on October 14, 2017 and running through 11pm or until we run out – whichever comes first. First come, first serve – that’s right – this should hearken back to the good ol’ days. This is a taproom-only release (draft and bottles).
