A Note on This Beer
Sure, tequila is delicious, but have you tried mezcal?
Like tequila, mezcal is made from agave, but its smoky flavor makes it fairly easy to distinguish from tequila. It also tends to taste sweeter and richer. After tasting top-shelf mezcal, for many fans, tequila just seems bland in comparison.
Getting your hands on a mezcal barrel-aged beer is like finding a needle in a haystack, or an “aguja en un pajar” as they say down South of the Border.
And that just scratches the surface of why today’s Encendía (Batch #2) Mezcal Barrel-Aged Saison is so enticing. Here are more reasons to snag this brew:
- It’s made by the world-famous Jester King, one of the innovative breweries who introduced the Farmhouse/Saison style to the US.
- Encendía is brewed with ancho chilies and epazote, a Mexican herb that delivers notes of notes of citrus, oregano, anise, and mint.
- This crazy flavored brew also packs a boisterous 14.1% ABV — that’s practically unheard of for a Saison!
After tasting this limited treat, you’ll likely refer to that other agave liquor as “tequila who?”
