Evil Twin Bushido Berliner Style….$13.99 / 4pk 16oz Cans
The code of conduct for the samurai, Bushido, held that the true warrior must show loyalty, courage, respect, integrity, gratitude, compassion, and above all, honor.  Same unwritten code went into the making of this beer.  A loyal and grateful collaboration with Micah Melton of  the Aviary in Chicago and New York.  With deep respect and compassion for the ingredients we brewed a courageous take on a Berliner Weisse and respectfully added yuzu and chili.  The result – Bushido.  It was truly an honor

Evil Twin / Omnipollo Old Fashioned Lemonade IPA…$12.99 / 4pk 12oz

A refreshing drink often associated with childhood nostalgia to others a pop cultural symbol of emancipation.  Whatever the association we teamed up with good old Swedes Henock and Karl of the fashionable Omnipollo to squeeze out a tasty, tempting and deceivingly well balanced IPA with sweet and sour notes of old fashioned memories.  Perhaps you can taste the dishonesty, it’s all over your breath, it’s lemonade.

First time for the Pink version

Perennial Oak Aged Corail de Sang…$14.99
One time only release!!
600 bottles produced
“Corail de Saing is a Belgian style Saison with torrified wheat aged in red wine puncheons with Brettanomyces for seven months.  Bottle conditioned, oak aged and brewed in collaboration with Paul Hayden and The Wine and Cheese Place to celebrate their 35th Anniversary.” – label
More info from Chris Kinast….
“Corail de Sang was brewed back in September with loads of Torrified Wheat and a touch of American hops in the whirlpool, and fermented in Stainless Steel with our house clean Saison strain. From there it was transferred into 2 French red wine Puncheons with a signal strain of brettanomyces (Brett claussenni) and aged for 6 months before being packaged. It was then bottle conditioned for another 3 before it’s release. Huge notes of tannic oak and almost a tropical fruit sweetness round out the pallet with just a slight tartness to finish it up. A touch of residual sweetness and a medium to high carb lead to a finish that will entice wine, cider or barrel-aged Saison drinkers alike. Corail de Sang will continue to develop in the bottle and age nicely (maybe a couple of years), but most will not build up any additional acidity.” – Chris Kinast, Perennial Brewer
