On Weds., September 27, we will release a new batch of Barrel-Aged Fear & Trembling.
Fear and Trembling is a Baltic porter brewed with malt that was hand-smoked over a blend of native woods. Originally conceived as a collaboration in our first month of operations with our former colleague, Anders Kissmeyer, this version is fermented in the traditional way, with lager yeast, and aged in both wine and bourbon barrels before bottle conditioning. As a student of philosophy and former resident of Copenhagen, it seemed fitting to name our first collaboration (April 2010) after Denmark's great thinker: Søren Kierkegaard. Anders, Shaun, and Søren: All three contemplated absurdity, faith, and salvation while wandering the shores of the Baltic Sea... "...continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling..."
