Tell-Tale Tart

When we first shared our 2015 release calendar back in December, we indicated that we were planning to brew at least twelve new beers this year. What we didn’t share is that we had a couple of test beers in the development phase that we weren’t quite ready to discuss.

We’ve recently received label approval from the TTB for one of these projects and are very excited to share some preliminary details for a brand new beer, Tell-Tale Tart.


Joining our year-round lineup of Smokestack Series four packs, Tell Tale Tart is presented as “a slightly sour ale” that derives pleasant, refreshing lactic acidity from brewhouse souring, a process of lowering the pH during the brewing process. The brewhouse souring method results in a crisp, clean acidity that serves as a contrast to a soft, subtly sweet malt character contributed by our base pale malt and Munich malt.

Once Tell-Tale Tart has completed the bottle conditioning process, we’ll be able to share more specific sensory notes.

Tell-Tale Tart is slated for a June release and will ultimately be available year round in four packs of twelve ounce bottles. Stay tuned for more news!
