Asheville Brewing Honors Neil deGrasse Tyson w/Bier LemonGrass Tyson

imageFrom Asheville Brewing:

Asheville Brewing Company will release Bier LemonGrass Tyson, a white ale infused with lemongrass and coriander, on Tuesday, June 13—the day that renowned scientist and beer lover, Neil deGrasse Tyson, will speak at Asheville’s Thomas Wolfe Auditorium.

The beer will be available on draft at Asheville and in very limited quantities of 22-ounce bottles from Asheville Brewing’s north and downtown locations. A dollar from every pint and bottle sold will be donated to the new Asheville Museum of Science.

“We wanted to make a beer to celebrate science and to honor one of science’s rock stars coming to our town,” says Mike Rangel, Asheville Brewing president. “We found an online video where deGrasse Tyson talks about beer styles he likes and how much he appreciates local beer. We heard you, Neil, and we made this beer for you!”

Bier LemonGrass Tyson is an American-style take on a traditional Belgian wit beer, brewed with German malt, Belgian yeast, and dry-hopped with Galaxy (of course). Lemongrass, sweet orange peel, and coriander are added in the boil to produce a flavorful, easy-drinking beer at 5.5% ABV.

“The pronounced fruit notes of Galaxy hops softens and balances the spice character of the Belgian yeast, while the lemongrass and orange peel add a layer of complexity to the flavors,” says Pete Langheinrich, Asheville Brewing head brewer.----
