Stillwater Ales and Mikkeller to debut new ale at Max's Taphouse Tuesday
Called "Our Side," the ale will also be released at three other locations in the country, Washington D.C., Virginia, and New York.
"Our Side," which the brewers are calling a collaborative gypsy ale, is a mix of Stillwater Artisanal Ales' Stateside Saison and Mikkeller Stateside IPA.
According to Max's, it is packed with "piney, resinous hops, and backed by the esters of a farmhouse yeast strain."
"Our Side" was brewed at Strumke's home base brewery, DOG Brewing Co. in Westminster, MD. It
the brewers' second collaboration, is called a collaborative gypsy ale because Mikkeller is Denmark's answer to Strumke. The local brewer is regularly called a gypsy brewer because he doesn't have his own brewery and instead rents space and equipment to make his product.
Strumke said in a follow-up e-mail he will head to Denmark soon to work on another collaboration, but that it won't surface in the United States until late Spring.
Strumke won't be at Max's for the tasting; he will be at D.C.'s ChurchKey.
The tasting at Max's begins at 6 p.m. (via)
