Atlas Fest Bier is our seasonal offering of a traditional German-style Spezial Helles, brewed only for Fall. Ours will be released just in time for the 2011 H St. Festival.
Fermented at 58-60°F for 2 weeks and then lagered for 5 weeks - progressively reducing the temperature by 2°F each day until we reach our terminal temperaure of 36°F. Atlas Fest Bier is brewed with American Brewers 2 row Pale malt, Munich malt and Aromatic malt. It was hopped with American grown German Perle to achieve a light, highly drinkable 17 IBU. There are also bready, biscuty and sweet malt notes in the aroma.
This one will be draft-only, and available mid-September. To make it extra-spezial, we only brewed one batch of this... and it may not last longer than one week!
