Collaboration Beer with 50 Foot Marketing and Design
Because we like to have fun and meet new people (who doesn't) we are beginning a new series of collaboration beers.
To kick off our series, we are collaborating with Martha Dixon of 50 Foot Marketing and Design. Why Martha? Because she and husband Justin Dixon have been long-time home brewers as well as The Faust's marketing company. Plus, they begged us.
So this Saturday, Dec. 10th, at 10am, we will be brewing a Wee Heavy Scottish Ale aged in Whiskey Barrels. These are not just any whiskey barrels, but the ever-so-hard-to-get Ranger Creek Whiskey Barrels. It only seemed right to use these barrels for this Wee Heavy so that we can give it the deep, complex flavor details that only a whiskey barrel can provide – much like the design work that comes from 50 Foot Marketing and Design.
This collaboration began with Ray and Martha discussing – over a Faust beer – what type of beer they wanted to make, and then identifying the kind of beer that would mesh the Faust's independent brand and Dixon's character. With a Scottish name like Dixon, and Martha's preference for stronger beers, the Wee Heavy was a perfect choice. Not just any Scottish ale, a Wee Heavy is sweeter and fuller-bodied, and of course higher in alcohol, with much more pronounced malty caramel and roasted malt flavors.
So if you're up and about this Saturday morning, come on over to the Faust and join our brew-making party. If you can't make it like us on Facebook, follow our blog(feed), or sign up for our newsletter (to the right) and we'll let you know when the Weeee Heavy is available on tap!
