Amber, bitter, slightly sweet, bready
For the 2019 Beer Prom we’ve teamed up with our friends at Future Primitive in Seattle to make Nut to the Future, a California Common with a German twist. Using our house German lager yeast, we fermented this beer at a higher than normal temperature in order to get the classic yeast character of a California Common. In addition to using a German Lager yeast we also used all German hops and malt. German Northern Brewer and Polaris provide a minty, woody bitterness that is associated with the style, while the Mittlefruh and Tettanger provide a clean noble finish. An all Weyermann malt bill, highlighted by Pilsner, Munich and Vienna malts, give this German Common an amber hue and bready, slightly sweet taste.
With its interesting flavors drink this lager with heavy foods to cut the weight of the beer. Roast meats, creamy sauces, lots of lamb dishes and beef would be the perfect accompaniment to a pint of Nut to the Future.
