Lake Forest, CA (PRWEB) November 18, 2014
The Rare Beer Club™, one of the four U.S. and international monthly beer clubs offered by The Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club™, announces that it will be exclusively providing club members with Grand Teton Vintage 2014, a blended beer crafted by Grand Teton Brewing of Victor, Idaho.
“Being able to exclusively distribute a unique, short-run beer like the Grand Teton Vintage 2014 is exactly what we love to do here at The Rare Beer Club,” says Kris Calef, president and founder of The Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club. “Almost a year ago, the brewery reached out to us asking what kind of beer we’d like to offer our members that we hadn’t done before. I suggested some kind of a high gravity blended ale aged in rum barrels and they took it and really ran with it. This is a beer that you won’t find anywhere else.”
The Grand Teton Vintage 2014 is a limited-run, 8.5% ABV blended ale composed of Grand Teton Brewery’s Cellar Reserve XX Bitch Creek E.S.B., its seasonal Coming Home Holiday Ale, a malt-forward Belgian-style Dubbel, and its Splash Down Belgian-style Golden Ale. After blending, the Grand Teton Vintage 2014 is aged for four weeks in 40-year-old Columbian rum barrels, and is crown finished before distribution. Grand Teton Vintage 2014 can either be consumed now, or cellared for years to come.
“The Grand Teton Vintage 2014 has aged beautifully,” says Rob Mullin, brewmaster and COO of Grand Teton Brewing Company. “As expected, the hops have mellowed significantly, and the chocolate-caramel malt flavors have really come through.”
This year, The Rare Beer Club featured seven other craft beers that were exclusively distributed through the club. Founder Kris Calef states, “We always try to slot an exclusive beer in December, as we do over half of our annual business in December. Memberships to our beer clubs are really well received as a gift for hard-to-shop-for beer geeks.”
