COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
How could we hope to top last year’s Jewbelation Sweet 16 with its cupcakes, unicorns, & Satan’s Ferrari birthday cake? massive challenge. So for Year 17, we threw in a whole new dimension to our shtick – we built our very own brewery! After 17 years of contract brewing, our first Shmaltz Clifton Park batch emerged 17 months after the first draft of the business plan. Coincidence? Renaissance means “Re-birth” in French & Italian. In Buddhism, the concept does not truly translate as “reincarnation” but instead as “becoming,” or a “stream of consciousness.” 11 syllables structure a haiku. Shakespeare penned 17 comedies. In The Simpsons episode “Duffness” Homer sings “When I was 17″ about buying his first beer with a fake I.D. “I drank some very good beer. I stayed up listening to Queen, When I was 17.” In The Office, Dwight recites Rule 17 that all Schrute boys must learn: “Don’t turn your back on bears, men you have wronged, or the dominant turkey during mating season.” Knowledge and growth come in many forms. It is taught that Nirvana is only attained when the soul transcends cycles of rebirth. Looks like Shmaftz just isn’t there yet. So with 17 malts, 17 hops, and 17% abv,JEWBEL4TIONREBORNserves as another mark of our death as a contract brewer and proof of our conversion to a new life as brewery owner…… L’Chaim!!!

tgncc (2848) - Bellmore, New York, USA - DEC 3, 2013
The aroma is vinuous, soy sauce, cereal grains, boozy. Really odd. The color is deep brown black, light tan head. The flavor is soy sauce, spicy, very boozy. The finish is booze burn, spicy, lots going on. Weird. Too much going on in this beer really. Medium thick in body, oily mouthfeel. I’ve loved the jewbelation experience, but maybe it’s come to an end.

Sample at Whole Foods care of Bill. Pours America brown with small off white head. Aromas of cinnamon bun, barrel, toffee, and malt. Taste is dark fruits, booze, sweet malt, sugar, and grapes. Honestly this hides 17 well but it’s not my thing. Pretty warming, light to medium body.
