To help kickoff our Hellbender Project, Oskar Blues Brewery in Brevard has created a special 2018 release of Hellbender Helles. What a great opportunity to raise awareness for this species! Breweries, like Oskar Blues, utilize the area’s great quality water for their craft so it’s very exciting that they are taking this opportunity to give back to protecting our natural resources. Proceeds from the brew will support the Hellbender Project which is the continuation of efforts to protect and improve habitat in our area’s streams and rivers.
According to Brewer, Barrett Lione-Setton, the 2018 Hellbender Helles is a traditional German-style Helles, or pale lager. To add a little extra as a unique addition, we've added Sichuan Pepper Corn for a little bit of citrus/pepper aroma and flavor. This pepper corn comes from China and has a unique attribute that causes your tongue to go slightly numb!
The brew will only be available initially at the Tasty Weasel tasting room at the Brevard location of Oskar Blues. The Release Party is scheduled at the Brevard brewery on Saturday October 13th from 12:00pm - 6:00pm.
