The Winter Ball Special Release Beers
Batch 1000 Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Downtown Brown (BKBBAIDTB) – We knew we had to brew up something special for PSB’s 1000th batch of beer, but we also wanted to pay tribute to the beer that started it all, Downtown Brown. And while DTB staked its claim as one of Wisconsin’s favorite craft beers, 5.5% ABV just wasn’t quite high enough for this special beer. We raised the alcohol to 10.5%, used more chocolate and Carapils® malts to balance the flavor profile and let it age in Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels until it reached perfection. This Imperial Brown tastes great today, and should only improve as time goes on, so whenever you choose to pour yourself a glass, raise it up and cheers to 1000 beers!
Mama’s Milky Way Stout – A truly out-of-this-world beer, this milk stout will tempt any extraterrestrial into abducting it! With all the milk sugar we put in there, a thick and creamy mouthfeel is the first thing you may notice about this beer before the complex malt flavors truly present themselves. Featuring Wisconsin produced Blackprinz® malt, the decadence found in this beer is hard to ignore yet easy to approach. Weighing in at a surprisingly sessionable 5% ABV, you’ll want to pack plenty of this on board for your next intergalactic trip!
Kessel Run Kolsch – Han Solo would surely have filled the Millennium Falcon’s cargo hold with this delicious and easy drinking Kolsch! This wonderfully simple beer is made using a surprisingly delicate and intricate malt bill, full of various forms of malted barely and flaked corn. Rounding out the flavor profile, the appropriately named Sky Rocket™ hops shine through and bring balance to the Force (of this beer). Feel free to drink this one all night long, as it clocks in at 4.7% ABV.
Encounter Sour IPA – If you have ever wondered what one of our delicious IPAs would taste like after it comes into contact with an alien life form, wonder no more! This tart and refreshing India pale ale was soured just a tad in the brew kettle before being heartily dosed with Mosaic® and Amarillo® hops. A blend of flavors from these interstellar hop varieties, combined with the refreshingly tangy flavor profile, results in a truly awesome drinking experience with wave upon wave of flavor. At a dangerously easy-to-drink 6.5%, this beer is best for those that aren’t afraid of having a close encounter of their own!
Prison Planet B – Using the traditional Parti-Gyle brewing style, we created this experimental mixed fermentation beer. Seven malts in the malt bill creates a complex baseline. Fermenting with saison yeast and ageing in red wine barrels with brettanomyces provides the funkiness. Blending with just a skosh of our sour gose base gives it a nice crisp finish. Escape from the Prison Planet B!
