We challenged ourselves to do something
radical with this 2X Seasonal offering. This time we simplified
to the most basic ingredients – one variety of hop and one type
of malt. Yes, single varietal. And since it is a seasonal beer, we’ll
change the pairing each year for a truly singular experience.
Although we’ve reduced this beer down to the most essential
two ingredients, it is amazing how complex the flavor is. In
a way it is a lot like looking into a kaleidoscope, where the
simplest object suddenly becomes a transfixing multitude
of images, repeating and reflecting until a whole is realized,
only to see it change yet again.
In operation since late 2002, Southern Tier Brewing Company produces over 30,000 barrels of beer annually. Phineas DeMink and Allen "Skip" Yahn started the brewery with the vision of reviving the practice of small batch brewing, and now the critically-acclaimed handcrafted ales are available in more than half of the United States, as well as parts of Australia, Denmark, Japan, Philippines, Singapore, Ontario, British Columbia, and the United Kingdom.
