Summit Brewing Unchained Old 152...$7.99 / 6pk
Sour mash in a beer? Yep, you read that right.Brewer Eric Harper has gone old school for Summit Unchained #11. As in, Old 152. Inspired by the Kentucky Common beer style that was popular before Prohibition, it actually uses a sour mash of maize and rye in addition to traditional malts and Cluster hops (just about the only hop available in the U.S. back then).
The results are anything but sour, yielding a chesnut-colored brew with a slightly spicy floral aroma, biscuit, caramel notes and crisp, clean bitterness.
