Back in the summer of 2019, we brewed Ouroboros with our friends at Carton Brewing. When Augie and his crew came to visit EQ this summer it seemed only fitting to continue with this cyclic theme during this complex year and brew a beer that means: “renew, renovate, replenish, revive, refresh, and regrowth as part of a cycle”.
Ananeòno uses a Blended malt bill of white wheat, flaked oats, oat malt, with a touch honey malt and an all New Zealand hopbill of Riwaka, Nelson, Motueka, Moutere, Waimea, and a hop under its new name: Nectaron.
Ananeòno pours sunlight-through-kiwi-fog with a very thick and stable head releasing notes of berry, white wine grape, cantaloupe, followed by the Riwaka complexity of passionfruit and slight hint of bright white pepper. The flavor follows the smell with citrus, and bright grassy creamy melon evolving throughout the sip. This beer has a strong metamorphosis as it warms and breaths so we suggest pouring it cold, sipping it slowly, and enjoying its evolution while taking a moment to refresh, revive, and replenish.
