Utah experts and home brewers collaborate on new beer
Beer » Brett Pale is served on tap at Annex.
First Published Jun 30 2014 09:58 am • Last Updated Jul 01 2014 08:11 pm

The professional brewers at Annex by Epic Brewing recently collaborated with the Lauter Day Brewers, a local homebrew club, to create the Brett Pale Ale.

The recipe was developed by brew club members and brewed using The Annex’s seven-barrel system. More than two dozen Lauter Day Brewers also helped brew the beer in mid-May. The keg was tapped on Friday, June 20.

Members said the "untraditional Pale Ale" was fermented with a unique "wild" yeast associated with the Brussels region of Belgium, called Brettanomyces Bruxellensis. The beer has aromas of pine, dandelion, hay, and wool, but a taste that is bright and sharp with tangy orange-citrus and spice.

"Homebrewers are a major, creative force in craft beer," said Annex Brewmaster Kevin Crompton, said in a news release. "They are always pushing the boundaries of flavor and exploring unique ingredients. Many of us started our careers in the beer industry brewing beer in our garage and we want to help and encourage the next generation of great craft brewers."

Brett Pale Ale, which is 4 percent alcohol by volume (3.2 by weight), will be available on tap at The Annex, 1048 E 2100 South, Salt Lake City, for at least another week — or until it runs out.
