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!!!

Ibrew2or3 (7910) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 26, 2013
22oz bomber pours with a very dark body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet malts, molasses, dates and figs along with a vague blending of hops in the background that have a citrus gummy bear to black licorice sensation. The taste begins with malts, molasses sweetened dark roasted malts, slivers of burnt malts, toffee and chocolate. This then leads into sweet dark fruity esters midway and into the finish providing yet another facet to the experience. This is a nice sipper where the huge abv is noticeable but restrained for 17%. Overall this seems it needs some time to better integrate.

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle from the holiday mix pack. This is the strongest beer I’ve drunk to date. Pours clear brown, beige head. Nose is toffee/molasses, some roast, slight alcohol, nondeScript hops. Flavour is same, mainly toffee/treacle, lots of nuts, the booziness isn’t too bad really, I’ve had beers with a third the abv with more alcohol presence than this. Could be that you’re just expecting it here. Sticky. Yeah a nice sipper.

TheGB (576) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Light aroma of spice and malt. Taste is malty and quite spicy, but quite tasty and complex. Palate is quite nice for the ABV, yes it is hot, but it’s 17% ABV so you’d have to expect that.

It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of rich caramel toffee with roasted malts and some cotton candy. The taste was of dark brown sugar, roasted malts, hops and a hint of earth. Very tasty.

Beardaxe (293) - - DEC 5, 2014
Poured from bomber into tulip. Pours black with little head. Heavy carbonation that needs to be toned down through aging. Flavor is complex and varied. The hops announce themselves, but never get out of hand. Same with the malts. there is a nice balance there. for being 17%, the alcohol masking is excellent. Easy drinking and smooth.
