Get Some Fresh Ink

Our final BC Small Batch release of 2019 shares a name with one of our tattoo-loving staff’s favorite things. (Besides metal/hardcore bands with names your parents are iffy about.)

Sharp and clean like an artist’s line, Fresh Ink packs a dangerously drinkable, sweet-tart punch. Blackberry and black currant puree elevate this imperial kettle sour, and a shot of Citra dry hopping emphasizes the fruity character. Residual sweetness from the grain bill and some lacto pucker keep it balanced, resulting in the best use of fruit you’re likely to find this December. Unless you’re really into fruitcake. We can’t help you there.

Fresh Ink is available to Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Colorado. Unlike actual fresh ink, this limited release isn’t permanent. Get it now before it fades away.

The Particulars:

  • Hops: Warrior (bittering), Citra (dry hop)
  • Malt: Two Row, Acidulated, Carafoam
  • Yeast: English Ale, Lactobacillus
  • Additions: Blackberry and black currant puree
  • Bitterness: Low
  • Pour: Bright dark red
  • ABV: 9.4%
