    Hey party people,

    Our next round of Lips of Faith beers are almost finished and will be hitting the Denver market around Feb. 1st. I'm pretty darn stoked for these two. Here's what I know so far:

    - Cascara Quad: Big 10% Belgian Strong Dark Quad. Huge malt bill (Munich, biscuit, black, special B). We also used the Rochefort yeast strain in this! Also, this was brewed with cascara. Don't know what that is? Neither did I. It's the dried fruit of a coffee cherry (it surrounds the bean inside). Kinda looks like a grape. Gonna give it a sweet, plum, pipe tobacco note.

    - Heavenly Feijoa Tripel (collab with Dieu du Ciel!): First off, if you haven't tried a beer from Dieu du Ciel!, I highly recommend you do (Lukas Liquor usually has some in stock). They're out of Montreal, Canada. Feijoa (pronounced FEE-JOAH) is also known as the pineapple guava. Like most trips, this has an easy malt and hop bill, but an increadible focus on the yeast (Bastogne Belgian Ale yeast) and the fruit and spices (Feijoa and Hibiscus flowers). Gonna be 9%. So stoked.

    Cheers!

    Excellent. Love me some Belgians and NB does them right. Very interested to try the cascara, I've never heard of such a thing.

    These both sound worth a try, looking forward to them.

    Right? Honestly had no idea coffee beans were actually seeds inside of fruit. Weird. But I'm also an idiot.

    Having eaten both feijoas and coffee berries fresh, I'm curious to try these...
