We met the great guys from Budapest’s Monyo Brewing during one of our travels and found we have many similar ideas about beer. It was natural then that the conversation quickly turned to making a beer together. The project: make a strong and unique brew using some Nordic ingredients. The result: we made a Wheat Wine, added black currents, oak-aged the beer in third-fill Breckenridge Bourbon barrels for several months, and then added just a hint of vanilla. The finished beer is as big as it sounds, vinous and tart with notes of whiskey and fruit.
