DryHop is throwing a release party this Wednesday, September 11 for its “Smoking Nanners” collaboration brew with Flossmoor Station Brewing Company. Details are below:
When: Wednesday, September 11, starting at 6pm.
The release of the Flossmoor Station Brewing Company/DryHop Brewers collaboration brew, Smoking Nanners, a 5.5% Smoked Hefeweizen, is a result of Flossmoor Head Brewer Bjorn Johnson and Greg’s time together in Munich for brew school.
Together, they traveled to different regions of Germany to learn about brewing techniques. A memorable stop was in Bamberg, where smoked beers are considered a specialty of the area. Smoking Nanners was brewed in tribute to Bjorn and Greg’s antics experienced there.
DryHop Chef Pete Repak and Flossmoor Chef Eduardo Camarena also collaborated on a dish for the evening – Smoked Guajillo Chile Glazed Texas Quail on Jicama-Tortilla Salad with Roasted Pineapple Relish and Pulped Avocado.
Tapping schedule is as follows:
6pm – Flossmoor’s Berliner Weisse, a low alcohol wheat beer, soured with lactobacillus and fermented with a Kölsch yeast strain. (3.0% ABV)
7pm – Flossmoor’s Kölsch, a clean, crisp, session beer with a soft malt and hop character. (5.2% ABV)
8pm – Flossmoor’s Roggenbier, a dunkleweizen made with rye instead of wheat. (5.6% ABV)
9pm – The release of our collab with Flossmoor – Smoking Nanners, a 5.5% Smoked Hefeweizen.
