Westword Beer Calendar

Black Project Spontaneous & Wild Ales, which is a part of Former Future Brewing, will host a bottle sale for its Kalmar, a 100 percent Spontaneous Imperial Gose, today at Former Future. Kalmar is a light, wheat-heavy recipe that we inoculated in our rooftop coolship. Sea salt and corriander were added directly to the boiling wort in the vessel. The next morning the wort was cool and put directly into a steam-cleaned neutral oak barrel," the brewery says. "After nearly one year the beer told us it was ready and time to bottle. Wheat breadiness, smooth pilsner malt, and clean lactic tartness. Brettanomyces funk plays well with the assertive coriander flavor and aroma that are present throughout. Slight oak character and of course a wonderful mildly salty finish as is characteristic of the style. Begs you for another sip. Beautiful complexity from all of these components and of course due as well to a true, wild mixed fermentation." The very limited beer will be sold in cork-and-cage 375mL bottles for $14 each. The bottle sale begins at noon, however people began lining up for the last Black Project release at 9 a.m. We will do our very best to allow everyone in line by noon to get at least one bottle. Additional bottles may be available to those at the start of the line," the brewery says.
