Auriga is the 4th installment in the Northern Hemisphere Constillation Brewers’ Select Series. Auriga is a American Stout: slightly roasty with a dry finish. Good hop flavor, thanks to plenty of Delta hops (a Cascade / Fuggles hybrid) in the kettle and whirlpool. Vienna forms the entire base malt with lots of Caramunich, roasted barley and chocolate malt for flavor and color and the mouthfeel and head retention are compliments of oats and wheat. 6.5% ABV, 44 IBU. Fantastic cool weather beer.
As with all of our Brewers’ Select beers, Auriga will have extremely limited production. Auriga will be available on draft at select restaurants and bars throughout our distribution area.
12 oz bottles and filled-from-the-tap fresh growlers will be available exclusively at Weyerbacher’s Visitors Center starting Friday, November 22nd, 2013.
