Our last beer release, April 18, was Centerfield Sensation, a popular Belgian Farmhouse Saison and a medal winner at the World Expo of Beer:
Centerfield Sensation—Belgian Farmhouse Saison
4.1% ABV 19 IBU
Centerfield Sensation is a traditional farmhouse summer ale that finishes dry, tart and spicy. Pale and refreshing, a bit fruity, with rocky white heads and "Belgian lace", Centerfield Sensation is a peppy tribute to Carolyn King, the first girl ever to play Little League baseball in Ypsilanti and caused a confrontation with National Little League baseball, which had banned girls. Defended by the City Council, Carolyn created a national sensation (filmed by TV crews) when she debuted at Candy Cane Park in 1973.
Our next beer release will be in May:
Kaiser Maibock—Helles Bock/ Maibock
7.4% ABV 32 IBU
A strong light amber with full malty sweetness, it's brewed in the dead of winter and released on Mayday as a harbinger of spring. Kaiser is brewed exclusively with German materials -- Munich, Vienna and Pils malts, Hallertau hops and Weihenstephan lager yeast. Our Maibock is an homage to Henry J. Kaiser, the "Miracle Man" who built Liberty ships during WWII and established his automobile production at the Willow Run plant, which later became Kaiser Jeep.
