(Papillion, NE) – Nebraska Brewing Company is pleased to announce the release of the first full production bottling of its Reserve Series Apricot au Poivre Saison.
Barrel Aged Apricot au Poivre Saison is an artful interpretation of a Belgian-style Saison created with Apricot puree and lightly spiced with Black Pepper. Six months of additional aging in third use French Oak Chardonnay barrels imparts a deliciously unique character not found in other Craft Ales. The delicate flavors and aromas of oak, apricot, chardonnay, and pepper intertwined in the barrel to achieve a flavor profile that is simultaneously complex and delightful.
This Reserve Series Beer was originally conceived as a seasonal beer and later introduced into a third use barrel in anticipation of added character that would enhance and not overpower. The end result is Nebraska Brewing Company’s 5th entry into an elevated realm of Craft Beers that require great skill, patience, and a little luck. Previously, this Craft Beer had been bottled and released primarily within the Brewpub with a few cases being distributed in select locations.
Paul Kavulak, President of Nebraska Brewing Company stated: “Our Reserve Series line of barrel aged beers provide our enthusiasts with some of what we consider to be our best. Since their inception, each brand within the series has been able to achieve and maintain a level of superior quality, diverse tastes, and fantastic complexity.”
Kim Kavulak, Vice President & General Manager of Nebraska Brewing Company adds: “The release of our Reserve Series Beers has come to be a highly anticipated event. With this being the first ever full batch release of BA Apricot au Poivre Saison, we believe consumers will be extremely satisfied.”
Nebraska Brewing Company has set the release date for Barrel Aged Apricot au Poivre Saison to be Friday, June 10th. A complete list of Nebraska Brewing Company brands can be found on our website, www.nebraskabrewingco.com.
