Here’s a new Specialty keg coming from Redhook. This one is called KCCO Black Lager and it will come in at 5.2% ABV.
I’ve had more than a few readers chime in that this is likely the first beer coming for The Chive and their Resignation Brewery project.
This additional tidbit from the Chive:
When you open the fridge you notice a selection of the best beers around. At your eye level you'll find curious row of humble beers marked 'KCCO' on masking tape. For about 6 months, theCHIVE has been mastering two home brews in the office that are actually, well, fucking delicious.
The first is our Black Lager (German Schwarzbier). It's a toasty fucker with notes of chocolate but, unlike a heavy porter or stout, it's amazingly crisp, clean, and light. It's really a remarkable beer.
The second is a Gold Lager. Very light and clean with a nice hop backbone (we switched to a Czech hop a while back which did the trick). Both beers are amazingly balanced and sessionable. We drink a lot here and I don't like feeling full after 2 beers.
If you’re a bar owner/manager in New York, Boston, Washington DC, Chicago, Dallas, Austin, Seattle, San Francisco, or LA, contact us at email@example.com if you’d like to be the first to carry KCCO Black. Be prepared for large crowds of awesome Chivers.
Shortly after the first limited engagements, KCCO Black Lager will roll out nationwide. To find out where KCCO will be available near you, sign up on the Resignation Brewery Website.
My brother and I have created a unique, humble American beer crafted by a brewer who cares about its consumers to be shared by consumers who care about each other. Hopefully we’ll even start some new American traditions along the way… RAK it.
