Mystery Brewing Company is a seasonal-only brewery. We don’t have a flagship beer that you’re always going to be able to get from us, and that’s different from the rest of the beer industry. The reason we’ve decided to do seasonal-only is because there’s already so much great beer available – we don’t feel like we need to provide another full-time Pale Ale for bars and consumers to choose between. We’d rather focus on unique seasonals, and always provide something new. Don’t worry – we’re not going to skimp on each batch. We’ll have most of our beers around for 3 – 6 months, but over time each one will go away before living a new life in a year.
With that in mind, here’s what you can expect from us this summer when Six Impossible Things and Mousqueton go by the wayside (Gentlemen’s Preference and Queen Anne’s Revenge will be with us for a little while, yet):
Fantine, Belgian IPA
Made with a touch of roasted barley and caramel Munich malt, rose hips, big, bold Summit hops, and Abbey Ale yeast.
A big (yet delicate) rye saison made with our house saison yeast and Aramis hops for a soft, floral hop aroma over a spicy dry body with notes of pineapple and pear.
Langhorne, Rye Wit
Like any other Belgian-style wit except we use rye instead of wheat, and a spice blend of blood orange, rose hips, and hibiscus flowers instead of coriander. In other words, not like any other Belgian-style wit.
Name TBD, Citrus Foreign Extra Stout
Yeah, that’s right. Lemony hops, lemongrass, and lemon pith all contribute to this big and amazingly refreshing stout.
Name TBD, Adelaide Sparking Ale
We’ll try our hand at this Australian version of a British Bitter that should have a light malty body, a huge helping of carbonation, and a generous dose of Australian hops.
And that’s just the beginning, we’ll be exploring flavors all year long in small, one-off batches. Also look for collaborations with chefs and other flavor-makers from around North Carolina. Join us for our all-year-long exploration of seasonality.
