WILK Friday BeerBuzz - 6 Sep 2013 - Stone 17th Anniversary Gotterdammerung IPA w/Mitch Steele

As much as I always feel bad when we wake him up at 5:30AM, we really love having our pal Mitch Steele from Stone Brewing join us on the WILK Friday BeerBuzz.  Mitch is a friend of the show and a frequent guest as we feature Stone’s latest Anniversary beer each year and it’s always great to get the inside scoop on what’s going on at Stone.

This year we were honored to wish Mitch and everyone at Stone Brewing a Happy 17th Anniversary…and what better way to do that than to sample their 17th Anniversary beer with Mitch.

Stone’s 17th Anniversary beer  is named Gotterdammerung IPA and as with all of their Anniversary brews, this one is really unique.  This beer starts life as a sort-of Imperial Pilsner, using all Pilsner malts, but it finishes up with Ale yeast.  In between all that, Gotterdammerung IPA gets loaded up with bittering, flavoring, whirlpool and dry-hopping using multiple unique and experimental German hops.  Look for Magnum, Herkules, Merkur, Opal, Emerald, Strisselspalt, Hersbrucker and even Sterling hops in the mix and the resulting flavor is a really unique IPA.
Gotterdammerung departs from the traditional citrusy or fruity hops found in American and New Zealand hops, and heads off on a spicy and herbal German path.  The color is gorgeous, the nose is uniquely hoppy and the flavor is resinous, bright and even a bit boozy.  Try this one for yourself and see what I mean.

Not only did we talk about Gotterdammerung with Mitch, but we also got some updates on Mitch’s new blog, his book release, the construction projects going on at Stone and even the future releases coming up in the Stone Collaboration series of beers.  As usual, we also didn’t forget to beg Mitch to open a brewpub in NEPA….so stay tuned Winking smile

Thank you to Mitch Steele from Stone Brewing, Nancy, John & Kyle for yet another

fun Friday.
