Salvation. The name of two intricate Belgian-style ales created by us, Vinnie Cilurzo of Russian River Brewing and Adam Avery of Avery Brewing. After becoming friends a few years ago, we realized that we both had a Salvation in our line-ups. Was it going to be a problem? Should one of us relinquish the rights? "Hell no!" we said. In fact, it was quickly decided that we should blend the brews to catch the best qualities of each and create an even more complex libation. In April 2004, in top-secret meeting at Russian River Brewing (well actually it was packed in the pub, and many were looking over our shoulders wondering what the hell was going on), we came up with the perfect blend of the two Salvations. Natalie, Vinnies much more significant other, exclaimed, "We should call this Collaboration, not Litigation Ale!" "Perfect!" we shouted. We celebrated deep into the night, (or is it morning?). Fast forward to November 14, 2006. After talking about it for over 2 years we finally decided to pull the trigger and Vinnie flew out to Avery to brew his Salvation exactly as he does in his brewery. This was blended with Averys Salvation December 11th, 2006. We hope you enjoy it as much we enjoyed brewing and blending it.

omhper (24781) - Tyres, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2007 Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear dark copper colour, small creamy head. Strong almondy Belgian style yeast aroma. Medium sweet and solidly malty. Theres lots of caramell and almond with notes of coriander and grass as well as cherries. Full bodied with clean mouthfeel. Salty finish. A good beer, but perhaps in this case the concept is more interesting than the beer itself.
