House Release: Island Baby

  • Black Star Co-op Pub & Brewery 7020 Easy Wind Drive Austin, TX, 78752 United States (map)

After a couple of months of aging, it is now time to set our little Island Baby free. 
This beer was born out of inspiration from a tiki drink and has finally come to fruition in this tropical, complex cocktail of a beer. 

Island Baby is the first release in our tiki inspired beer series. 
We took a malt forwad, 9% ABV base beer and then aged in St. Croix rum barrels for 7 weeks allowing all of the molasses, oak and caramel flavors to be imparted. We then re-fermented this base beer with pineapple, passionfruit and pomegranate juice to give it a ton of fruity tropical notes with a slight acidity to balance it out. 
Enjoy a glass of this beer and instantly be transported to your favorite island wearning cheap sunglasses, open toed shoes and way too little sun screen. 

9.1% ABV 22 IBU
