We’ve been anxious to share this unique release for months. In collaboration with the Pink Boots Society local Chapter, Tannery Run Brew Works, and Boardroom Spirits, we bring you two similar but distinct beers under one moniker: SPLATCHPACK.
Employing the method of split-batch brewing, Tiamat Lager Boots and its bigger, bolder sister brew Saphire Strong Boots derive from the same base ingredients but are finished separately. Both feature our First Crack Malt along with the 4th Annual Pink Boots Blend hops made by Yakima Chief Hops.
Starting this weekend find 4-packs of SPLATCH containing two cans of each style at a Farmers Market near you! When you buy, a portion of the sale will go to support the Pink Boots Society in funding their efforts. See below to learn more about our collaborators.
See descriptions for both brews below, courtesy of Tannery Run:
Tiamat Lager Boots – Hoppy Amber Lager, 4.4% ABV | 38 IBUs
Brewed in collaboration with Deer Creek Malthouse, this lager abounds with herbal and citrusy hop aromas along with notes of tropical blossoms and toasted crackers. This beer is hopped exclusively with the 4th Annual Pink Boots Blend made by Yakima Chief Hops. Using First Crack Malt, Deer Creek Malthouse’s Melanoidin style locally grown malt with dark roasty bitterness with rich maltiness, and notes of toasted bread, burnt sugar, and dried fruit.
Saphira Strong Boots – Barrel-Aged American Strong Ale, 10.2% ABV | 69 IBUs
Brewed in collaboration with Deer Creek Malthouse and Boardroom Spirits, this American Strong Ale was aged in Boardroom Spirits’ rye whiskey barrels for three months and boasts rich oak and citrus aromas on the nose with plenty of spicy rye character on the palate along with deep notes of caramelized sugar and dried fruit. This beer is similarly hopped exclusively with the 4th Annual Pink Boots Blend made by Yakima Chief Hops, and uses Deer Creek’s First Crack Malt with equal effect.
