Allagash Brewing Company (Portland, Maine) has officially announced that bottles of Ganache, a Dark Ale fermented with Brettanomyces and aged on raspberries, will return to craft beer shelves for a limited time during the month of October 2018.
Inspired by a chocolate cake, Ganache is a Belgian-style Dark Ale that is brewed with a “robust grain bill” – for those cocoa notes – and then fermented with “both Allagash Brewing Company house yeast and Brettanomyces claussenii before aging on fresh, local raspberries.” Although it does not include “the addition of actual chocolate”, Ganache (7.5% ABV) comes together to offer “the liquid equivalent of biting into a tart, raspberry-filled chocolate cake.”
Ganache is officially shipping out now and will be available as long as supplies last. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 375ml bottles at select craft beer retailers located in Georgia, Maine and throughout the rest of Allagash Brewing’s 17 state distribution footprint. Prost!
