Surly Temple

Every great temple starts with a simple foundation and rises to spectacular heights. Temple, Surly’s BC Small Batch beer for August, earns the comparison.

It starts as a relatively uncomplicated imperial kettle sour. Then the going gets weird: It’s embellished with pomegranate, mango, and peach additions. Then the going gets weirder: A heap of vanilla beans mellows the fruity tartness. Then the weird gets pro: A lactose addition back-sweetens the entire thing.

(Did we mention the hit of Citra dry-hopping along the way? There’s a lot going on here.)

The result is complex, sweet, tart, and fruit-forward. Temple pours hazy magenta and may be as close to a religious experience as a beer with such humble origins can get.

The fine print:
• Hops: Warrior, Citra (dry hop)
• ABV: 9%
• Bitterness: Low
• Special guests: Peach, Mango, Pomegranate, Vanilla Bean, Lactose

Temple is available to all U.S. Surly markets beginning August 5th.
