Hitachino Nest Commemorative Ale

Also known as Hitachino Nest New Year Celebration Ale
Commercial description
Hitachino Nestbeer Commemorative Ale is brewed in the tradition of a true Eisbock where the brew is concentrated by allowing the water to freeze {but not the alcohol}. After the mashing of five different malts {Pale, Munich, Crystal, Chocolate , and wheat} four differing types of hops are added in the brewkettle for bitterness & aroma {Styrian Goldings, Hallertauer, Tettnang, Saaz} . Five different spices complete the New Year Celebration Ale recipe {coriander, orange peel, nutmeg, cinnamon & vanilla beans}. After a freezing period of three days at 24F {= -4C} the frozen water & protein are removed. The bottle conditioning will then ring in a six month maturation time in the bottle. Enjoy Kiuchiís Hitachino Commemorative Ale while you forget the worries and troubles of the old year!
