Today we are drinking a beer out of Double Barley Brewing down in Smithfield on Hwy 70 business – the Double Dubbel. Of the Double Dubbel, Double Barley brewery says it is “a classic Belgian Dubbel brewed with Belgian Pilsen, Munich and wheat malts along with the darkest candi syrup. Fermented with a Belgian yeast strain, starting at a lower than typical temperature, creating subtle classic Belgian phenols without overwhelming.” Double Dubbel pays homage to Trappist monks … and, well, “monk Larry.” The addition of dark homemade candi syrup during high krausen lends subtle undertones of plum. Like a mad scientist concocting experiments, Larry spent his first five brewing years in his garage adding this and that ingredient until the masterpiece was made.
