The Keel in Video and Print
Take a look inside the sour brewery at CMBC! In our new video, you’ll hear the guys talking about The Keel, barrel-aging, what else is going on in the sour brewery, and some of the unique fermentations we’ve got going on.
And Brian talks about the future of sour beer: “Everyone talks about wine being the complex drink. These sour beers blow wine out of the water. That’s where beer’s going. These sour beers; these adventurous beers. It’s challenging the pallette.”
And The Keel just got a pretty great review from MyCentralJersey.com!
“Last month, the brewery released its first bottled offering, a 6.6 percent ABV American wild ale named The Keel. Chocolate funk greets me as I eagerly take the first sip that reveals a light wood character mixed with a puckering wine grape tannin assertiveness. There’s a caramel sweetness that serves as a steady bass line in the background, while letting the other flavors: a lactic bite, earthy pepper and dried red stone fruit step forward. And maybe it’s just because of where the beer was made, but there’s a perceived saltiness, like that first breath of sea air in the morning down the shore. Pair with a good French triple crème cheese.”
