Checking in with The Keel

So, you got your three bottles of The Keel back in June, and you’ve been dutifully sitting on two of them for aging, right? Your cellar thanks you! You’ve shown a remarkable amount of self-control, and you should be congratulated.

If you think it’s difficult for you to sit on such a stellar brew, imagine how the guys in the brewery feel. We’ve squirreled away a few bottles of each of these releases, and will be checking in with them periodically to see how they’re faring. These bottle-conditioned beers will continue to evolve as they age — up to two years — and Jimmy and Brian have been dying to break open a new bottle and check in with its development.

The guys seem to think that the Brett has really come through as it aged. The sour notes have subsided a bit and the rusticity of the Brett has had some time to come through.

“It’s definitely way more balanced,” Brian says.

“It’s gonna keep getting more rustic,” Jimmy says. “The sourness isn’t really dying down, it’s just becoming more of a part of the Brettanomyces flavors.”

Do you agree with their assessments? Let us know in the comments.
