Rhum is the old world/pirate way of spelling rum. Rhumpshaka started life as an almost nondescript 11% ABV beer using 80% Pilsner malt and 20% oats to allow the character of the rum barrels to be the focus. Rhumpshaka spent over 9 months in 12 old rum barrels, some of which were commissioned back in 1982! The resulting beer is unfiltered and has a profound boozy character. Huge coconut and passionfruit-like aromas fill your nose. The heat from the rum is immediately apparent and blends well with the vanilla and coconut flavors, which linger on your palate. It’s a sweeter finish with tannic notes commensurate with extended barrel aging. Packaged in a 750 ml bottle with cork and cage finish.
Rhumpshaka is a one-time special release available exclusively at the Visitors Center. Release date: April 18th, 12:00 noon.
