Blind Enthusiasm Brewing Releases 86 Lagér

EDMONTON, AB – Blind Enthusiasm Brewing has announced the release of a unique new lager.

86 Lagér (5.3% abv):

86 Lagér is a barrel-fermented beer made with Lager and Brettanomyces yeasts. It’s a blend of 12 month California and Spanish Red Wine barrels and is lightly dry hopped with Saaz and Strisselspalt. While in barrel, rogue acidifying microorganisms infiltrated a couple of the barrels leading to an unexpected dimension: medium light acidity! The resulting blend has floral hop notes, balanced red wine fruitiness, bright citrus, and stone fruit aromatics. We love the result, but this acidification method has been forever 86’ed from our production playbook.

86 Lagér is available at Blind Enthusiasm’s Biera and The Monolith locations and online shop, as well as select beer retailers in Alberta.
