Following up on the delicious fun we had brewing and sharing Requiem for a Pancake, One Love - Imperial Stout Aged in Jamaican Rum Barrels and Rye on Rye on Rye on Rye, our previous Brewhouse One Series releases, we're excited to announce that it's almost time to share another new, special beer with you, our friends and neighbors!
Allegro Non Troppo began life as the Belgian-style golden sour ale we brew to create Love Child blends. Following primary fermentation with our house Belgian yeast strain, the base beer was aged in neutral wine barrels for an average length of 18 months with a mixed culture of lactobacillus and brettanomyces. Following this period of barrel-aging/fermentation, the sour Belgian-style golden ale was transferred onto 2,000 pounds of crushed Tempranillo grapes in a stainless aging tank to rest for five months.
Allegro Non Troppo pours an electric magenta hue boasting rustic aromas of black currant, forest floor and leather. This magnificently complex sour ale features a bracing lactic acidity with notes of ripe blackberries, bright red raspberries and a touch of lemon. Allegro Non Troppo finishes quite dry with airy, effervescent carbonation and a lingering tannic character from the Tempranillo grape skins.
ABV - 11%
Bitterness - 6 IBUs
Color - 12 EBC
pH - 3.51
Beemster X.O with fresh berries & mint leaves, dark chocolate raspberry cordials, strawberry rhubarb pie, roasted leg of lamb with rosemary & lavender, beef carbonnade
Allegro Non Troppo will be available in 750ml bottles exclusively at the Boulevard Tours & Rec Center during a public bottle release on Sunday, April 22nd beginning at 10am. Bottles will be $25 each with a limit of two per transaction. Sales will take place in our first floor Experience Area, and fans who arrive prior to 10am should line up at the Tours & Rec Center front doors.
On April 22nd, we will also be celebrating Earth Day, and we are very excited to partner with Kansas City Native Plant Initiative for this Brewhouse One Series release. $1 from each bottle sold will benefit Kansas City Native Plant Initiative, and our friends at KCNPI will be in house to discuss the important work they do.
