THE GATE CELEBRATES LIFE & LIMB
In August of 2009, brewing pioneer Ken Grossman of Sierra Nevada and maverick brewer Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head collaborated on a companionship. The result is a brotherhood of beer reflecting the kinship that has developed between these two indefatigable craft beer brewer-advocates.
Life & Limb is a 10% ABV strong beer that defies style characteristics-brewed with pure maple syrup from the Calagione family farm in Massachusetts and estate barley grown on the Grossman “farm” at the brewery in Chico. The beer is alive with yeast-a blend of both breweries’ house strains-bottle conditioned for added complexity and shelf life, and naturally carbonated with birch syrup fresh from Alaska; it is the first beer we know of ever to use birch syrup in the brew.
Limb & Life is a companion to the big beer-an acorn off the larger tree. It is a 5% ABV small beer-a low-gravity beer made using the residual sugar as “second runnings” from the first larger brew, fortified with American hops. This is a session beer. Its big brother is a sipper.
In tribute to this pair of collaborative brews, we will also roll out a few selected specialties from both Sierra Nevada and Dogfish Head.
LIST TBA but expect the rollout of
Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Vintage 2004!
The Gate’s own beerheads Patrick J. Hops & Jay P. Malt on hand and at your service!
