BEER INFO

Brewed by:
August Schell Brewing Company
Minnesota, United States
schellsbrewery.com

Style: Schwarzbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Dark and mysterious, with an intriguing wisp of smoke, a chimney sweep has long been considered a source of good luck. Schell’s Chimney Sweep draws its inspiration from these lucky individuals and the rich dark lagers of Upper Franconia in Germany. Expect a black lager with a roasty maltiness, sturdy hop bitterness and an underlying subtle smokiness.
