Birdsong Weekly Newsletter, Tuesday September 12, 2017
This THURSty THURSday!
St. Tuber
Sweet Potato Abbey Ale
ABV: 6.5%
IBU: 25

It’s hard to talk about delicious autumnal brews without talking about the weather but, somehow, we’re gonna do it. Last year we educated you on loam, the nurtrient-rich soil used to grow crops like sweet potatoes and hops. Super cool stuff, right? This year, we’re going to talk about clove, an ingredient integral to this week’s THURSty THURSday release: St. Tuber.

Clove comes from an evergreen tree in the myrtle family indigenous to the aptly named Spice Islands of Indonesia. The buds of the “mother of cloves” flower is harvested before it blooms. Cloves, whole or ground, are incredibly aromatic, spicy, and perfect for awesome beers like St. Tuber. In addition to the 450 pounds of sweet potatoes that go into this Abbey Ale, we add a touch of clove for a warm, snuggly scent and a hint of sweet spice. These ingredients complement the use of Belgian yeast, which gives it a nice estery quality on the nose. Put down your pumpkin beers, please, there’s a new brew in town.

This is a fan favorite, so for those who are familiar with our fall beers, get excited for Thursday. If you’re new to the scene, get excited anyway because once you try it, you’ll see what the fuss is about. Join us at 3pm on Thursdayfor the release!


I Yam what I Yam: While frequently considered a sweet potato and vice versa, a yam is actually different. Sweet potatoes are part of the morning glory family, while yams are related to grasses and lillies. Hailing from Africa and Asia, yams are often drier and considered more starchy as well. Since yams are traditionally grown and harvested overseas, you’ll more likely to find sweet potatoes in your grocery stores instead.
