This beer was brewed for the first time in our brewers’ garage, together with Karl Vanevenhoven. Karl is a hop lover and COO of Yakima Chief Hops (YCH). The hops that make this beer so special come from YCH. Our brewers met Karl and his family during their trips to the US and have visited them three times in Yakima, the Hop Walhalla of the world.

Karl was the first to brew with this neomexicanous hop, later named Sabro®, while it was still a single hill in the experimental hop yard. Our brewers were immediately overwhelmed by this intense aroma hop, which gives notes of citrus, mint and even some coconut to the beer. To put the hops in the spotlight, as the name of the beer suggests, Sabro® was used almost exclusively along with a small amount of Magnum to give the desired bitterness to the beer. T90 hop pellets were used in the brew kettle during boil and whirlpool while the special Cryo Hop® pellets were used in the fermenter for dry hopping. Karl and his team developed the Cryo process at YCH. This process, in which liquid nitrogen is used, concentrates the hop resins improving beer aroma and quality making the hops really shine in the beer.

The result is a very drinkable and superaromatic beer. Think sun, sea and beaches with hints of coconut, lemon(grass) and mint. The Voss Kveik yeast adds a touch of tangerine to all that tropical goodness.

Your perfect companion on a sunny terrace.

Sabro & green curryFOODPAIRING

https://usercontent.one/wp/www.tourettebrewing.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/Tourette-Brewing-Sabro-foodpairing.jpg

We had a hunch that our Sabro would go perfectly with an authentic Thai green curry. Spicy and fresh, just the way we like it.

So we tested it out and we were right! Sabro and green curry is a 1 + 1 = 3 combo! 🌶🍋🥭🌶🍻

The herbs in the curry match the spicy hoppiness of the Sabro. We added some extra lemongrass to the curry to underline the fresh notes in the Sabro (bruise lemongrass, cut it, add to the curry but don’t eat it). The lemongrass creates a strong bridge between the beer and the curry and accentuates the tropical hoppiness. The CO2 cuts through the coconut cream while the bitterness of the beer and the spicy edge of the curry balance each other out nicely.

In summary: curry • Sabro • sleep • repeat

If you couldn’t care less about all that beer sommelier talk…just try it!

Our second beer, Black, also started out as a homebrew in a garage in Ghent. Black IPA is a beerstyle you don’t come across very often, but we like it a lot so we brewed our own!

The roasted malts provide the dark color and notes of dark chocolate and coffee. It has a fairly strong bitterness of almost 50 IBU that is further accentuated by the roasted malts and the low alcohol content. Munich & caramel malts balance out the hops and increase the body of this low alcoholic beer.

We have yet again opted for expressive American aroma hops: Sabro, Citra and Simcoe. For dryhop we only used Simcoe, including cryo pellets. The Voss Kveik yeast allows the green, fresh and somewhat dank hopflavors to shine even more.

Ook ons tweede bier werd eerst gebrouwen als thuisbrouwsel in een Gentse garage. Black IPA is een stijl die je niet zoveel tegen komt, maar wij houden ervan en dus hebben we er eentje gebrouwen!

De geroosterde mouten in het recept zorgen voor de donkere kleur en de toetsen van zwarte chocolade en koffie. De Black heeft een vrij stevige bitterheid van bijna 50 IBU  die nog wat meer geaccentueerd wordt door de geroosterde mouten en het lage alcoholgehalte. We hebben Munich en caramelmout gebruikt om het hopgeweld uit te balanceren en de body van dit laag alcoholisch bier wat te verhogen.

We hebben alweer gekozen voor uitgesproken Amerikaanse aromahoppen, namelijk Sabro, Citra en Simcoe. Als dryhop hebben we uitsluitend Simcoe gebruikt, inclusief cryo pellets. De Voss Kveik gist laat de frisse en ietwat harsige hoparoma’s nog beter tot hun recht komen.

Five tastes and many more flavors in one pairingFOODPAIRING

https://usercontent.one/wp/www.tourettebrewing.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/tourette-brewing-foodpairing-black.jpg

To pair our Black, we opted for a complex interplay. The five basic taster: sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami in one pairing. A Black IPA always works well with strong cheeses, so we concocted a salad with goat cheese, fried bacon, baked apples, roasted pine nuts, cherry tomatoes, arugula, raisins and a fresh dressing made with honey, mustard, olive oil and wine vinegar. One bite will be a bit sour, the other sweet with a nice bridge of rather salty and umami components. The beer provides the bitter touch.

The baked apples and cherry tomatoes give the dish freshness, which is further underlined by the slightly sour and sweet dressing. The salty goat cheese creates a filmy mouthfeel that the Black IPA will cut through, a contrast that works really well. The salt also enhances the hop and malt flavors in the beer. The tropical character of the Simcoe contrasts with the earthy taste of the arugula, while the raisins, apples and dressing provide the sweet touch.

The roasted pine nuts and especially the savory fried bacon build a strong bridge with the aromas of the roasted malts and bring all the flavors together nicely.

We are proud to dedicate a beer to our Belgian punk legend, The Kids! This hoppy pale ale, Bloody Belgium’, is named after a well-known song of the band that bursts through the speakers at breakneck speed.

Punk as we love it. Rebellious and straight forward.

Hey Ho, let’s go!

The Voss Kveik yeast we used for this beer is also a fan of the genre because after less than a day the brew had already fermented. Bloody Belgium is a nod to our small and bizarre country and so we chose to only use Belgian hops that were grown by our friends at ‘t Hoppecruyt.

‘Bloody Belgium’ was launched on August 21st during Razernij, a beer and music festival organized by our friend Kris De Meester and headlined by…The Kids.

Foodpairing with a quaffable, hoppy pale ale called Bloody Belgium?

A no brainer!

We could elaborate on exquisite harmonies and contrasts but sometimes less is more. Let’s call it a thematic beerpairing: Bloody Belgium with Belgian (sorry, France 😉 ) fries!

Our pale ale also pairs perfectly with ‘stoofvlees’ (stew), chicons au gratin, Gentse waterzooi,..you catch our drift.  🙂

Some Tourette members have been to the West Coast of the United States several times and have become even bigger fans of the iconic ‘West Coast IPA’.

So it was obvious that sooner or later we’d brew our own version, inspired by examples from our favorite and renowned breweries in that region. Especially Breakside and Ex Novo from Portland, the beer Walhalla par excellence, have stolen our hearts.

We tweaked the maltbill, hops list and water composition to brew our West Coast true to style. Fairly dry, very aromatic and pleasantly bitter.

The selected Belgian malts bring out the aromas of the American hops.  Columbus is our bittering hop. Chinook and (lots of) Citra provide the typical tropical fruity and citrusy notes, and we added Simcoe for the ‘dank’ quality of our Westkust.

Yes, we are proud of this beer! Hope you’ll love it as much as we do!
