Newport Storm Brewery announced a sixth release in its barrel aging beer program, called “inferRIoirty complex.” The Belgian style Brett beer has a “spicy, slick and slightly sweet mouthfeel” and is made with Canada Rye and Dextrin malts. After the beer was aged in Thomas Tew Rum barrels for four months, Brettanomyces yeast was added to the brew adding flavors of “stone fruit and cherry.” Aged Czech Saaz hops were used to “balance sweetness and add earthy tones” to complement the rum barrels. Brew Master Derek Luke said, “One of the truly unique things about making this beer was the element of surprise, when we’d pull samples from the barrel each tasting was completely different.” inferRIoirty complex is now available in Rhode Island, as well as Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Maine.
