camelopardalis-labelCamelopardalis (meaning Camel Leopard AKA Giraffe) is the next installment in the Brewers’ Select Series.

With a deceptively low bitterness measurement of just 40 IBU and a whopping 10.2% ABV, this Belgian-style Imperial IPA sports huge aromatic notes of orange, coconut and tropical fruits (thanks to the whirlpool blast of over 200 pounds of Hopsteiner OCC Experimental and Simcoe Hops!). It’s vinous, leggy and has a nice, fluffy white head. The dry, malty backbone is courtesy of a 100% North American pale malt grain bill fermented with a Belgian wheat beer yeast. Esters of green apple linger on your palate. The bitterness doesn’t hang out too long, so it makes for a great pairing with delicate foods as well as spicy dishes. This beer was brewed to be consumed immediately, so please do not age it at all! Enjoy it fresh, enjoy it now!

Camelopardalis debuts Friday, March 7th, 2014 at noon at Weyerbacher’s Visitors Center in 12 oz bottles and growler fills. Camelopardalis will be available on draft in extremely limited quantities in restaurants and bars in early March. 12 oz. bottles are available exclusively at the Visitors Center. We’ll fill growlers too!

      Thanks, Scott! Thanks to that incredibly easy test, we know it’s ‘Real Firefighter Scott Walters’, not ‘Robot Spam-O-Matic Scott Walters’. Glad you enjoyed Camelopardalis!

      Hi Lyle! Bring a growler and come soon because we ONLY have it on draft! We’ve been sold out of cases for a few weeks now. We expected a shipment of growlers last week but it has yet to arrive so BYO!

    My fiancé and I visited about a month ago and loved our time there. We both instantly fell in love with this beer and were really upset that we couldn’t purchase a growler to get it. 2 weeks later, we found it at a bar and got a growler.
    It has become my favorite beer and I’m so saddened to hear that it’ll go away soon.

    We plan to visit in a week, and I hope we can fill our growler!!
