Crawfish Boil Beer List 2017

CRAWFISH BOIL BEER LIST 2017

Vienna Lager– amber, malty

  • Brewed primarily with Vienna malt, this amber lager resembles an Oktoberfest beer. Our Vienna is crisp with Noble hops and a pronounced malt character. Commercial examples are rare except in Austria and Mexico where this style flourishes.
  • ABV = 5%
  • OG = 1.050
  • FG = 1.012
  • IBU = 24
  • Tom

 

Tamesis Bitter– golden, balanced

  • We brewed an Extra Special Bitter using a yeast strain sourced from a now defunct brewery along the River Thames. The yeast profile goes a long way in defining the flavor of a clean, bright ale like this one.
  • ABV = 4.9%
  • OG = 1.051
  • FG = 1.014
  • IBU = 45
  • Charles

 

Citra Pale Ale– yellow, citrus

  • This American Pale Ale is brewed with Citra hops . The neutral yeast takes a back seat to the strong citrus hop profile. This is hoppy by English standards, but it’s still an easy drinking Pale Ale on American palates.
  • ABV =5.5%
  • OG = 1.057
  • FG = 1.015
  • IBU = 35
  • Kevin

 

The Princess Monster Saison– pale, bubblegum

  • We took last year’s Saison and created a monster. We tweaked the grain bill and used a hybrid Belgian/French yeast which created a slightly more fruity Saison. This well attenuated beer is spicy and dry, and at 6.4% is the highest alcohol beer in the lineup today. Tread carefully and beware the Princess Monster.
  • ABV = 6.4%
  • OG = 1.055
  • FG = 1.006
  • IBU = 36
  • Rob

 

Kölsch– yellow, balanced

  • If there’s an official beer of the Crawfish Boil, it’s gotta be the Kölsch, an easy drinker with a balanced profile using gentle noble hops, light Pilsner malt, and a clean Kölsch yeast strain. Yes, we’ll have another!
  • ABV =4.7%
  • OG = 1.048
  • FG = 1.012
  • IBU = 30
  • Kyle

 

Amarillo Wheat– golden, citrus flower

  • This clean American wheat beer is easy to drink and uniquely accented with Amarillo hops. These hops are flowery and citrusy with a light orange bouquet. This beer has become an AGU staple.
  • ABV =5%
  • OG = 1.048
  • FG = 1.010
  • IBU = 27
  • Charles

 

Zoigl– yellow, fresh

  • Normally Pilsners are cold lagered for weeks before they’re served, but a pocket in eastern Germany close to the Czech border specializes in fresh Pilsners called Zoigls. We’re currently lagering this brew to enjoy a cold Pilsner in the heat of late summer, but we pulled one keg for this party to see what a fresh Pilsner, or Zoigl, tastes like. Try now and then compare with the same beer at our Oktoberfest and see which you like better.
  • ABV =4.5%
  • OG = 1.048
  • FG = 1.014
  • IBU = 28
  • Dickie

 

Cream Ale– light, balanced

  • Here’s a new style to the AGU lineup, the smooth drinking Cream ale. This is an American style popular in the Midwest in the pre-prohibition era and is meant to be easy and refreshing to drink. It should pair well with the spicy Cajun foods at this party today.
  • ABV = 5%
  • OG = 1.051
  • FG = 1.014
  • IBU = 18
  • Andy

 

Rye Pale– golden, rye spice

  • Rye makes its third return to the Crawfish Boil! Rye is used sparingly in all beers because it is not an easy grain in the mash tun. Here, an addition of rye went into this American style Pale to give it a bit more spice, a bit more bite.
  • ABV =5.1%
  • OG = 1.056
  • FG = 1.017
  • IBU = 32
  • Kevin

 

Berliner Weisse– light, tart

  • This straw colored ale should be refreshing and mildly tart. Yeast- Don’t worry about it. We got this. Private fucking collection!
  • ABV = 3.2%
  • OG = 1.034
  • FG = 1.010
  • IBU = 15 or whatever
  • Andy/Kyle

 

Northern English Brown– dark copper, malty

  • An old school English style, the Northern English Brown is a malt driven beer. Compared with the Tamesis Bitter, which uses the same delicious yeast , this Brown will be sweeter due to fewer IBU’s. A small addition of chocolate malt brings a lightly roasted nut flavor.
  • ABV = 4.5%
  • OG = 1.049
  • FG = 1.013
  • IBU = 28
  • Charles

 

Peated Stout– black, smoky

  • This original recipe takes our Irish Stout and adds a wee bit of peated malt (ah, the peat), which gives it a unique smoky quality. We find that it pairs well with scotch. This beer took gold for best stout at Microfest 2017.
  • ABV = 5.4%
  • OG = 1.055
  • FG = 1.015
  • IBU = 38
  • Tom

 

Pepper IPA– yellow, hot

  • This year’s pepper beer is an IPA, and it’s the freshest beer in the lineup, brewed only 3 weeks ago. This hoppy American style is spiced up with a Guajillo and Arbol peppers, but be careful! We’re still working on the formulas to get the right amount of heat.
  • ABV = 6%
  • OG = 1.054
  • FG = 1.008
  • IBU = 54
  • Kyle

 

IPA– golden haze, bitter

  • This one is all about the hops. We started out with a heavy grain bill but it didn’t stand a chance. Brewed with Simcoe, Citra, Mosaic, and Amarillo hops this should cure your hop fix.
  • ABV = 6.2%
  • OG = 1.057
  • FG = 1.008
  • IBU = 64
