Our next can release will be Plush Pop (Raspberry-Lime-Vanilla Sour), Threat Level Midnight (Scottish Stout), and Threat Level Morning (Coffee Stout) on Saturday October 16th!
Plush Pop ($18/4-pack) – 5.2% ABV
Sour Ale with Raspberry, Lime Zest, and Vanilla Beans Added
This isn’t your typical Sapwood Cellars sour beer. It wasn’t aged in barrels. It wasn’t mix-fermented by a wild culture. We didn’t source local fruit. What it does have is loads of fruit flavor from raspberry puree and fresh lime zest, plus a heap of vanilla beans! It’s the sort of sour beer we want to drink on a hot summer day where a refreshing beverage is more important than nuance and complexity!
Threat Level Midnight ($16/4-pack) – 6.5% ABV
We were inspired to make a “stout” version of the toasty-caramel-forward ales of Scotland. For malt we relied on Golden Promise bolstered by both light and dark caramel malts all from Scotland. While a Scottish Export might have a touch of black barley for color, we added considerably more. The result is roasted barley notes of coffee and chocolate on the nose with rich dark fruit and bready malt on the palate.
Threat Level Morning ($17/4-pack) – 6.5% ABV
Scottish-Style Stout with Coffee Added.
While we love massive hulking dark beers, sometimes you want to drink a whole can of stout by yourself! Despite its restrained strength, we don’t sacrifice malt-intensity or body. The base stout was inspired by Scottish ales with Golden Promise pale malt, dark caramel malt, and roasted barley. We add a twist with coffee beans locally roasted by Vigilante Coffee in Hyattsville MD and then added mere days before canning. The coffee intensifies the chocolate-notes from the malt, while bringing its own grape and dried fruit aromatics. ices of the season: cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, and vanilla!
