VICTOR, ID – Grand Teton Brewing Company, known throughout the West for their exceptional craft brews, is proud to announce the release of Double Vision Doppelbock, the first in their 2016 Cellar Reserve series.
Double Vision Doppelbock was first brewed in 2009 to highlight the brewery’s wonderful water. Like all great traditional brewing towns, Victor, Idaho is in or near some of the world’s best barley- and hop-growing regions, and is distinguished by an ample supply of top-quality water.
Grand Teton Brewing’s Double Vision Doppelbock is brewed with Idaho 2-Row Pale and German Munich, CaraAroma, CaraMunich and de-husked Carafa malts to an original gravity of 22˚ Plato. The malts provide a dark leather color with ruby notes, a luxurious tan head, and a bready aroma with a hint of smoke. It is lightly spiced with German Hallertau Tradition hops and fermented with lager yeast from a monastery brewery near Munich. In the traditional manner, Double Vision is fermented cold (48˚F) and lagered more than 12 weeks for smoothness. At 8.0% alcohol by volume, it is a deceptively drinkable springtime warmer.
Double Vision’s slightly burnt caramel flavor and malt sweetness make it an incredible match for game—venison, moose, duck, goose, and wild boar—especially when prepared with fruity sauces or reductions. Try it with pork and sautéed apples, roasted root vegetables, sweet sausages, ham or prosciutto. It’s wonderful with cheese and dessert, too. Pair it with an aged gruyère, a caramel flan, or a crème brûlée.
Alcohol by Volume: 8.0% • Original Gravity (Plato): 22˚ P
International Bitterness Units: 40 • Color (Lovibond): 47˚
Double Vision Doppelbock will be available February 15, 2016 in 1/2 and 1/6 bbl kegs and bottle-conditioned 6/750 mL cases.
