Episode #140 – Blind Squirrel Brewery – Belgian Tripel

Today we are drinking the Belgian Tripel out of The Blind Squirrel Brewery located in Plumtree in Avery County. They might best be called a nano-brewery, but they say that’s “just fine as we’ve always heard that the best things come in small packages!” They say “If you like big complex beers, look no further. Our Tripel is brewed using a simple malt bill and only a few hop additions.” While the malt and hops do contribute to the final product it’s really the Trappist Ale yeast that’s on display here. “Be careful, many have been lured in by her delicate lacing, sweet aromas and intricate flavors only to realize she’s a big 9% beer that will sneak up on you if you over indulge.”
