Excited to try this collaboration between these two fine breweries. Anyone else heard about this?
I have...sadly I'll have to find a trading partner in Florida for it since B. Nektar isn't bringing any back to Michigan.
WHAT! that's crap! Didnt know that
Glad this beer is getting some free publicity, but that video sucked.
I always wondered what toasted coconut actually was thanks for clarifying CCB
Cant wait to try this @ EBF
15 minutes away from CCB. Looking forward to give it a try.
It's pretty darn tasty even uncarbonated
^You lucky bastard ha ha. This sounds like an interesting combination of flavors, probably will make the trip for this one. Any ideas on release date?
If you guys from Florida land an extra bottle, I'm sure we can work something out.
Let me know
Love the Tampa Community College video quality.Maybe filmed on VHS?
don't know release dates just know it taste good.
I love that a collaboration involving a michigan brewery isn't coming to michigan (insert sarcasm) way to go b nektar!
I'll definitely be getting this...looking for Bourbon banana French toast
not going to find that here in Ohio........sooooo ISO
Wish there was a release date! Really looking forward to this, B Nektar is an AWESOME meadery and I have never had a mead or braggot made with meadowfoam honey but have heard great things.
Talked to the people of b nektar on twitterand I guess it isn't coming to michigan due to alcohol laws....??
I had a sample of it during the brewery tour a few weeks back, and it was delicious. My girlfriend, who doesn't like beer, even enjoyed it. My plan to drink her sample backfired on me.
Wait, people still drink lager?
That seems like a serious lack of forethought.
Troy and Abed think that video is awesome in a terrible way and terrible in an awesome way.
Ya think? Just saw the other comment though....what "laws" would prevent this from coming to Michigan other than label approval, or CCB not being licensed to sell in our state?
Well if that video doesn't get you excited, I dk what will.
They didnt elaborate, way dumb.
This is available as of now exclusively in the CCB Tap room, but it will see distribution. $15 per 750ml bottle in the tap room.
Ghost Stories is a Braggot (fermented from both barley and from honey) that was brewed with lager yeast, making it a truly unique... experience. The honey used for the mead portion is Meadowfoam, which is most notable for its huge marshmallow flavors. But we didn't stop there. We also added some chocolate, coconut, Chinese black smoked tea, and a touch of white oak as well.
From our brewmaster Wayne: "The result is a black braggot with hints of smoke, marshmallow, chocolate, vanilla and macaroon that is exceptionally complex and rounded even though it is over 10% ABV. The overall intent is to emulate a Smores Braggot with slight smoky notes from being prepared over an open camp fire."
I grabbed four bottles tonight.
No question....this is very good and complex. coming in at 10.5 ABV you would never guess it. Nice fresh case went home with me.
This...got to try it recently on a tour
Picked up four of these today along with some other goodies.
How are these tasting? Like mead like beer? Equal of both? Never had a braggot.
Definitely grabbing some of this next chance I can make it over there. Sounds very complex and quite delicious! CCB usually does not disappoint
Imagine a Smores flavored barleywine. If you get chance get some.
It most certainly doesn't suck, but for me it is one of those rare beers whose aftertaste is better than the actual taste.
Would love to try this one.
