Belgian Style Abbey Ale brewed with Black Mission Figs
Black Mission is the definition of a collaborative effort.
It is a recipe born of three brewers, inspired by two very different styles of beer, and designed to showcase the fruit for which it is named — Black Mission figs. The brewers used a simple but classic dessert as a starting point for their recipe, the fig newton. For generations, this dessert has combined the sweetness of figs with the earthy spice of a graham cracker crust. Patrick,
Tim, and Gopal decided to reproduce this classic flavor profile in Black Mission by combining a beer style that has a toasty, bread-like quality with a yeast strain that has fruity esters.
