Her Majesty's Crush: Special Release

Join us as we release two special versions of Her Majesty's Crush Old Ale! Enjoy a side by side tasting of these incredible heavy hitters, aged in two different barrels.

Her Majesty's Crush Old Ale - 12.68% ABV
This complex provision ale has had quite a journey! Conceived in 2016, this hearty, nuanced brew has the highest quality English pale malt as its base and is finely tuned like an old violin with carefully selected English character malts. Hops include German Magnum and U.K East Kent Goldings. It was fermented and cold-conditioned for eight weeks, then matured in Caribbean Estate Rum barrels for eight months. Expect notes of oak, vanilla, toffee and brown sugar. 

Her Majesty's Crush Old Ale with Figs - 11.25% ABV
We brewed a second batch of our Old Ale with Moylan's Head Brewer, Derek Smith. Derek suggested a second fermentation with locally grown figs. We barrel aged this version in George Dickel Rye Whiskey barrels. Expect notes of dark fruit, caramel, honey and spice.

Entry is free, beer costs money. Must be 21+ to purchase and consume alcohol. Check out our full lineup of San Francisco Beer Week events on our Facebook page for more info.
