Magic Number collaboration beer… DC Brau / Union Craft Brewing / Stillwater Artisnal
I love me some beer and the boys at DC Brau in DC make some good beer. I got the call to help create some art for a new 3-brewery (DC Brau / Stillwater Artisanal / Union Craft Brewing) collaboration beer called “MAGIC NUMBER – IPL” which will be available around the DC/Baltimore are this week for Baltimore Beer Week.
The beer is an India Pale Lager (6% ABV) and is a mix of 3 different hops (Simcoe, Amarillo & Citra). The brewers description is as follows:
“Magic Number” has a light, quenching body and a touch of flaked oats for a light, creamy mouthfeel. By using a lager yeast we’re able to keep the yeast character clean and restrained by means of a cooler fermentation temperature which lets the gentle malt character and the ridiculously juicy hop character be the only point of focus. Floral, citrus, grapefruit, passionfruit, earth, pine and melon.
3 Brewers, 3 Hops… 1 kickass beer. Hopefully I will get a taste soon.
