When breweries meet and decide to brew something together, sometimes it takes a lot of efforts to choose an idea. But not this time. Expertise and experience of Saugatuck multiplied by love for the Varvar Milk Stout, and so we have a square milk stout. Or rather Imperial Milk Stout. Almost a month of e-mailing, more than a day and night of brewing, artwork, naming, a bit of magic and love for beer, and that's it. "Awaken your inner sweet-tooth and open up new flavor horizons!". No. Just enjoy this beer brought to you by three teams: Saugatuck Brewing Company, Beermasterday by Silpo and Varvar Brewery. And yes, beer is connecting people.
This beer is a new step of our evolution. The recipe was designed exclusively to became the first release in our canned line-up. We decided instantly that it should be something easy, summerish, but not lacking flavor and joy of hops. So the name just came after an evening run. Imagine coming back home slightly but pleasantly tired, thirsty, with new ideas and here it is, waiting you in the fridge, something not too high in ABV and flavorful. It is a Blisss. The ssss sound of can opening and joy and happiness melting in one. You don't have to run to enjoy it to the fullest, but it's a pretty neat match.
This is a double version of our with chipotle. If you haven't known or forgot, chipotle is a smoked jalapeno hot pepper. We mostly boosted the alcohol, so don't worry, it still doesn't burn out the taste buds, at least we think so. And disclaimer: no, neither alcohol, nor hot pepper doesn't help to fight the virus, but they don't obstruct the it as well. So keep calm and wash your hands.
This beer doesn't need long stories, it's just obvious. The name of this New Zealand hop variety Kohatu sounds almost identical to Ukrainian word "to love", so that was it. Juicy and fruity jumping out of summer market where on the same row you can find red berries and tropical fruits and citrus. Azacca and Mosaic support this succulent extravaganza.
This triple IPA beast is a total submersion into the depth of hoppiness. Feel the pressure of high ABV, huge citrusy aroma, immense bitterness, it’s a buds scraper of 80 IBU. If you feel ready to push the limits of hops tolerance, jump in and join the ride on this Blue Yellow Submarine. Are you ready?
If you paid attention to the fact that this is the easiest beer we've ever made, you are right, it's only 2.8% ABV, but this wasn't our aim. We've decided to make a series of fruited Berliner Weisse with lactose for body, and for absolutely fantastic mouthfeel we introduced nitrogen. No, it's not a special nitrogen tap, it's addition on the maturation stage. This was the technic we wanted to try. And for the mousy, creamy head we've named it Schaum which is "foam" n German. But enough technicalities, believe us, it's amazing.
Long awaited collab between Siren form UK and our brewery. It's a merge between their Broken Dream and our Caribbean Dream. Imperial porter with coconut and coffee. Coffee was roasted at local Kyiv roastery, so it's almost a tri-collab.
Collab with our friends from Tsypa, mountain spring water, Amarillo, Cascade, Centennial, Pekko hops, 50 IBU classic. To make your staying at home at least bearable. Cheers!
Confessions are not only about love, but yeah, that's the season now. We will throw in some other confessions. First we will confess that this beer was inspired by red wine, that's why contains grapes, wine yeast and we even aged it on American oak. Others will follow: Anton, our head brewer, loves folk music; Lena, our yeast whisperer has dreamed of being a poetess instead; Artem from sales has caught fish from fish tank in kindergarten, Lana is afraid of the dark. And Dmytro confessed his love to Yulia and said "Will you marry me?" And she said "yes".
We don't urge you to choose between red and blue pill, but ask you to dive into the sea of ripe mango and hops - Citra, Amarillo, Mosaic, Simcoe - of this vibrant, intense DIPA, brewed in collaboration with our Polish colleagues from Browar Raduga. Andrzei is a big movie fan, just as our Vasyl, so the hommage was inevitable. This version was brewed in January in Kyiv, and Polish part of collab took part in December in Warsaw. We are quite happy with result, are you?
We planned to get our Sanurai's Daughter few sisters for the longest time. But we couldn't get the right tea, or find more interesting rice variety, and here it just clicked. We've played with wine yeast and champagne yeast already, and now sake yeast. There was no other options for it's usage. We avoided adding ginger this time so no to obstruct the fine aroma of the yeast. So welcome the younger sister, sake version.
