Today we are releasing XVII Anniversary on draught at the brewery, the only place you will ever be able to buy it.
When we taste beers that push boundaries for the first time it's usually a shock to the palate. Our palate is an invaluable tool, in fact the most important tool as a brewer. It's our nose, mouth, and mind working as one to make sense of what we are consuming. This beer will stun your taste buds, mystify your olfactory system, and bend your mind; slipping your soul into a chorus of "Hallelujah".
XVII is a lager that was brewed using a floor malted bohemian pilsner malt and decocted twice. This old-world wort was boiled with new world hops creating intense bitterness, flavor, and aroma. Fermented slowly by a lager yeast for three weeks it was then ready to be dry hopped to oblivion over the course of the next 5 weeks. Is 100 IBUs really all we can get into a beer? Hhhhhhmmmmm....
Taste it with an open palate, not looking for clues given by the brewer.
This lager is right-celebratory. Happy XVII Anniversary Cisco Brewers.
