HIGHER AND BETTERER
Brewed in collaboration with Dry & Bitter
With the Dry & Bitter team back in Paris, we decided to brew a sequel to our first collaboration, High & Better. Our new baby, Higher & Betterer uses an even larger dose of the same varieties of hops and malts as the original, yielding a tropical fruit hop tonic weighing in at 8% alcohol. We thank David Perry for the wonderful label art.
LE GRAND PARIS
We brewed this beer for the first time in March 2017, for the inauguration of the brewery in Saint-Denis, our big challenge. Throughout our experiments, we will offer you different versions of its recipe, varying the combinations of hops, but remaining faithful to the same selection of malts and keeping its bitterness.
This beer was made with the addition of lactose. This non-fermentable sugar gives the beer a rich thick body and touch of sweetness that blends with Valrhona cocoa powder, oat flakes, a touch of vanilla and a generous dose of dark malts to create a perfect dessert.
Our Presse-Abricot is a beer whose sour taste is obtained by a lactic fermentation. The apricot (fruit puree), added at the end of fermentation, remains dominant, on both the nose and the palate. It is a refreshing beer, tart and slightly bitter.
Citron Givré is a limited edition IPA dry hopped with Lemondrop, a newly released variety from the Pacific Northwest of the United States. It infuses the beer with aromas of lemon, tea, mint and orange blossom to remind us of the warmth of summer in the dead of winter.
This beer is brewed with three roasted malts for intense flavors of coffee, bitter chocolate, plums and raisins. Toasted chips of American Oak, vanilla beans and cinnamon sticks are infused into the beer to give the flavor of aged spiced rum from the Caribbean. Enjoy it now or allow it to age in a cool dark place where it will continue to mature over the course of several years.
This beer was brewed with a generous dose of Valrhona cocoa powder and dark malts, oat flakes and a touch of vanilla to create a beer bursting with roast and dark chocolate flavors. Savor it now, or allow it to age in a cool dark place where it will continue to mature over the course of several years.
Azaka-Tonnerre is the voodoo god of thunder and also the namesake of the new hop variety, Azacca. This beer gets its dark chocolate character from a blend of roasted wheat and barley which marries with crisp bitterness from Simcoe hops and fruit aromas from Azacca hops added post-fermentation to create a beer as refreshing as a summer thunderstorm.
Côté Sombre is a beer with a silky black body and long lasting foam. The three roasted malts give it intense flavors of coffee, bitter chocolate, plums and raisins. Enjoy it now or allow it to age in a cool dark place where it will continue to mature over the course of several years.
