Best of Hands Barrelhouse in West Seattle announces the release of three canned beers: two IPAs and a sour. While they all sound delicious, the sour ale sounds particularly interesting. Yep, cans of sour ale. Get these new canned beers at the brewery starting on Wednesday, April 7th. A limited amount of product available on tap, but not for to-go orders. Only the cans will be available to-go.
Electric Nothing, NEIPA – 6.5% – A hazy IPA with flaked oats and flaked rye, Idaho 7 hops, and Sorachi Ace hops. “Notes of tropical fruit, satsuma oranges, woody notes of cedar, and an herbal-dill earthiness.”
Luxury Standard, IPA – 7% – A IPA that is heavily hopped using Vic Secret. “Aromas of pineapple juice with underlying hints of perfume. Tropical fruit notes meld with some herbal spiciness on the palate. Complex finish with notes of citrus pith, hints of currants, and sticky resin.
Strange Invitation, Oak Aged Sour // Second Use Plums – 6% – A blend of the following: a 20-month Cabernet Sauvignon barrel-aged aged sour ale, which underwent refermentation on 118 pounds of second use wild Italian plums, and a new American oak-aged foeder beer.
“Oak, pineapple, earthy funk, and plum on the nose. A melange of bright fruit flavors enveloped in oak and a hint of vanilla and some minerality dissolve into vinous notes and subtle plum. Dry, acidic, & complex finish of oak tannins, grape skins, and plum noyaux.”
