For this latest Scratch Beer offering, we’re revisiting one of Chris Trogner’s favorite beer styles. We originally brewed this Belgian Brown Ale last year as Chris’ wedding beer. Well, we’re pleased to announce that the honeymoon isn’t over and the beer has returned to commemorate his first wedding anniversary. Rich and malty with a decadent chocolate note and tangy dried fruit characteristics, Scratch #80 pays homage to the Abbey-style Ales brewed by monastic monks in Belgium. The addition of Westmalle yeast (a Trappist yeast strain) enhances the flavor and texture of the ale, giving it an authentic Belgian flair. Dark Belgian Candi Sugar helps to maintain the high alcohol content attributed to many Belgian-style ales. It’s sweet, colorful and not bitter at all… just how all marriages should be!
The brewer markets this same or near-same product by more than one names. This can be the result of a brewer distributing this beer under different names in different countries, or the brewer simply changing the name, but not the recipe at different points in time.
