Another week of some tasty brews coming to us from Abu Nawas and among those is another new brewery from Brooklyn…everyone welcome Blank Brewing Company to Iowa! Here’s more on this week’s drop!
First up, Blank Brewing will be starting their time in Iowa with their stout, A Round on the House.
From the mysterious brewery: The purpose of this message is to announce the arrival of a new entity – one whose origins and whereabouts are currently unknown and shall be kept anonymous for the duration of its existence. The purpose of the entity in question is to create beers that you have never seen before. You may or may not be aware of who is involved here, but identities will not be revealed. To clarify, there is a reason you can’t see me: because unless the ideas seem either entirely youthful or utterly forward-thinking, this entity will not produce them. Labels by Mr. ZZZZ, beer from me,_______.
Is it a secret brewing cabal? The Illuminati? We’ll never know, but what we can say is they make great beer.

- Reposé 750ml Bottles – Inspired by the dusty, hay-filled stone barns of the Nord de France that likely gave way to the rise of Bière de Garde, we included a small portion of hay in the mash for this beer. Taking a further cue from the slow and steady winter fermentation of the style, we allowed Reposé to rest in brandy barrels for almost a year. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and 100% bottle-conditioned. 8.3% ABV.
