Black Currant Sour is the first batch in the Perrin Foudre Series. This beer was soured with Brett Trios yeast & Labtobacilus Brevis than aged for 9 months in an oak foudre.
Black Currant Foudre Sour will be released from the pub on draft and 6-pack cans to-go for $12.99 this Thursday, December 14th.
Brewed by Casey Conley as part of the Perrin Brewer Series, Redbeard’s Ryevenge is a riddle wrapped in a mystery wrapped in an enigma. Is it a rye beer? Is it a Brett beer? Is it an IPA? The answer is...it is ALL THREE!!! Rye was only 7.5% of the grain bill so you get a subtle spiciness and dry finish. This beer was hopped with over 75lbs of Amarillo, Ella and Motueka hops. Fermented using Brett Trois yeast which offers nice tropical phenols and a slight funk. Olive oil was used in the whirlpool to produce oleic acid, which is normally produced by yeast synthesizing oxygen. Essentially, skipping the “middle man” of aerating the wort. Expect this beer to have a considerable amount of tropical and citrus flavor and aroma. Sláinte
As you put together this year’s Thanksgiving menu add a few Perrin beer favorites to the list. From cooking with beer, pairing dishes with beer, and even beer for dessert – several craft beers have made its way to be a top food-friendly beverage of choice around the table.
From the Perrin Brewers, the team chose some beers to pair up with dishes this holiday season to give those flavors a little extra punch.
Caesar’s Gimp – a Roman Imperial Red Ale fermented with Cabernet Sauvignon grape juice and aged in California Merlot oak wine barrels. Hints of oak, malt and grapes blend together making a smooth and interesting representation of flavors.
Try pairing Caesar Gimp with turkey and a side of cranberries. This medium-bodied style of beer will complement the natural tartness of cranberries and give any bland turkey some flavor.
Available in bottles from Perrin Pub.
Light Lager – a true American Lager with a perfect balance of malts and hops melding together to ensure its insatiable drinkability. At only 110 calories per can, Light Lager is a beer to always have freshly stocked in the fridge for the holiday season.
Try pairing Light Lager with appetizers or mashed potatoes. As a lighter beer, this is a style of beer to start off the holiday feasting. A few cans of Light Lager won’t give off the full feeling, especially when course one rolls around.
Available on draft and 15-packs from Perrin Pub and in market distribution.
Das Brown – A Bamberg style light brown lager with complex malt flavor and hints of smoke. Brewed with beechwood smoked barley and oak-smoked wheat this is a full malt flavored lager.
Try pairing Das Brown with smoked turkey or other various fatty, dark cuts of meat. The oak smoked flavors in this style of beer come out through every sip.
Available on draft in Growlers/Crowlers to go from Perrin Pub.
98 Problems IPA – a West Coast hopped IPA that balances a sweet malty backbone alongside Michigan cascade hops. This IPA imparts massive floral, citrus and bitter aroma while creating a smooth, crisp finish.
Try pairing 98 Problems IPA with some heavily seasoned stuffing. The combination of hops in this IPA will complement and intensify the seasoning/spices within the stuffing. The more spice the better! You might have 98 problems this Thanksgiving but good beer and stuffing ain’t one.
Available in 6-pack cans from Perrin Pub and in market distribution.
The Hypocrite – an Imperial Blonde Ale aged in California Merlot barrels offering up unexpected spice flavors of cinnamon, cardamom, and maple in a rich, elegant and tiramisu-like finish.
Try pairing The Hypocrite with any pie from the dessert spread. The combination of flavors will pair nicely with most sweet dessert.
No Rules – a gigantic Vietnamese Imperial Porter that is deceptively smooth and subtly sweet. Imagine layers of coconut, cinnamon, toffee, vanilla and coffee all dipped in chocolate and soaked in bourbon.
Try pairing No Rules with a glass.
A beer that was named as one of the top beers in the world doesn’t need anything to compliment it. Just grab a glass and enjoy a holiday nightcap indeed because for this Thanksgiving there are no rules.
A Bamberg style light brown lager with complex malt flavor and hints of smoke. Brewed with beechwood smoked barley and oak smoked wheat this is a full malt flavored lager that finishes rich and smooth.
We took a big, bold sea salt Gose and aged it in fresh Tequila barrels for three months before adding fresh limes. Bittered with Vic’s Secret hops and brewed with wheat and oat malts, this beer has a rich creamy body that finishes fast with an explosion of Tequila, lime and salt.
Some nights you feel like cuddling on the couch and watching Netflix. Other nights you feel like pillaging villages, burning your enemies crops and salting the earth. Some lovers like to cuddle and others are gasoline to your fire and want to dance through the ashes as you burn the world down. The problem with these relationships is when they go bad they often explode from an intense passionate love to a deep burning hatred. This beer is for those who bring out the best and worst of us. Here’s to when we’ll see each other next and we both know where that will be…
Introducing new Perrin Light Lager......

New on tap in the pub is Cosmic Apparition, a New England Style Double Dry Hopped IPA
75 IBU 6.8% ABV
This beer was brewed with oats giving a smooth, almost ethereally fluffy mouthfeel. Tropical fruit notes of pineapple and mango burst forth from the very generous double dry hopped additions of Galaxy and a Mosaic Cryo hop hash that all wrap together leaving a ghostly haze.
