(Tampa, FL) – New announcement from B. Nektar Meadery…
For over a year now, Wayne Wambles of Cigar City Brewing and Brad Dahlhofer from B. Nektar have been working on a groundbreaking collaboration. To the best of our knowledge, no meadery and brewery have ever designed a recipe from scratch and brewed it together.
The idea here was to develop something that took on a S’More like characteristic. The recipe is for a big robust chocolate porter with lots of specialty malts, and about 50% of the recipe will be made up of meadowfoam honey. This special honey is uniquely suitable for this recipe because it naturally has an aroma and flavor that is similar to marshmallows. There are also some other surprises that we’ll announce later.
The beer is going to be brewed at Cigar City in Tampa, FL and released under their brand. As of this writing, we’re not sure if bottles will be available in stores, or if any of this will be kegged.
The meadmakers of B. Nektar will be at Cigar City’s taproom next Friday, October 26th. They’ll be pouring Zombie Killer, Evil Genius, and a very special limited, draft, Black Pepper / Mango mead. No official time.
