Short Batch Series - Brett & I by Smuttynose Brewing Company
Belgian Pale Ale
0.00 % ABV

"Brett and I" is a beer brewed in homage to the
great Down East humorists Marshall Dodge and
Robert Bryan (with Tim Sample getting the
honorable mention.) If you haven't listened to the
"Bert and I" tapes, go ahead and call LL Bean for
your copy. They'll give you a good idea of the daily
insanity of living in Northern New England. Of
course that begs the question of exactly what I'm
doing here. But, oh well, it's a great place to drink
beer at least. And Brett and I is hopefully a great
beer to drink while talking socialism over the back
fence with your neighbor Enoch.

Brett and I is obviously brewed with Brettanomyces.
We used Brettanomyces claussenii and in our case
we used it for secondary conditioning. The original
beer was a Belgian strong ale brewed with the
Chimay yeast cropped from The Gnome. Still gave
us that nice fruity character and still hasn't dropped
bright. We ended up kegging the beer after six
months of conditioning, but the brett character is
still developing. It gives off an interested pineapple
aroma and flavor, which I hope will continue to
evolve.
