A new beer style from the North American continent. Black as a porter and hoppy as an IPA. Called a Cascadian dark ale or a Black IPA. The term “Cascadia” comes from the Cascade Mountain Range, which includes the area around British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, western Idaho and northern California. The taste is a mix of hops notes as: resin, pines , citrus and balanced against the dark malts giving notes such as chocolate and mild coffee. With carefully selected powerful hop varieties from the Americas, added dark malts, this beer achieves a delicious balance between hop aroma and malt fullness. Fermented at a temperature that allows the yeast to form fruity esters which provides a soft balance between the dark malts and hops. Should be enjoyed at 10-12°C, (50-54°F) in a Munkebo glass that highlights the aroma of American hops.
The wolf, Fenris is bound with the chain Gleipner in a cave in Jotunheim. The chain is forged of fish breath, bird saliva, bear’s sinews and mountain roots, noise from cat poters and woman beard. It is magical and even the great and mighty Fenris wolf cannot tear it up. At Ragnarok, an earthquake will set the wolf loose and he will fight against Odin and eventually kill the almighty Alfather.
