Well, I don’t think anyone from Schlafly, O’Fallon Brewery or New Albanian Brewery expected this beer to take as long to brew as it did, but it’s done. The first collaborative effort from these three breweries is now in the tank ready to start fermenting.

  • 3 O’Fallon Brewers
    • Stu Burkemper
    • Dave Johnson
    • Brian Owens
  • 1 New Albanian Brewer

  • 1 Schlafly Brewer
    • Brennan Greene
  • 6 – Number of times the mash got stuck
  • 2.5 Hour Lauter
  • 20% Smoke Malt
  • 25% Rye
  • 14.2 Plato (1.058 OG)
  • 3 Kettle Hop Additions
    • Chinook (60 Minutes)
    • Willamette (20 Minutes)

We should hopefully be seeing this in VERY limited quantities come mid-January. Here are some photos for your enjoyment:
