The Homebrew Chef Cooks Up a Beer

Sean Paxton, the Homebrew Chef came into the 21A last week and brewed with Head Brewer Jesse Houck, a Belgian dark strong beer as part of one of the six offerings we will have on for Strong Beer Month this February. Sean brewed a version of this beer with Matt Bryndilson of Firestone Walker and it was called Saucerful of Secrets. Made with seven different types of sugar, this beer brewed at the 21A will be high in alcohol (hence it's inclusion in Strong Beer Month) and will have a very complex malt profile.

Wow! You just wrote three magic words, "Belgian", "dark" and "strong." I can't wait to try that one, along with the others.

Speaking of dark beers, do you guys ever brew a dunkel weiss?

I was in NY for the holidays and stopped at the Blue Point Brewery on Long Island and they had a fantastic dunkel weiss, and I'd love to see one at my local brewpub.

Just a thought.

Anyway, cheers.
