Yazoo SUE out in bottles!


We bottled about 100 cases of SUE on Monday, and it has made it out into the Nashville market! Our distributor dropped cases off at Midtown Beverages, Frugal Macdoogals, Grace's, and with more to come. It's packaged in our "Brewmaster's Reserve" four packs, with black labels and black bottle caps.

You may notice that we changed the recipe slightly (good catch Nathan!). We increased the body and the amount of cherry-wood-smoked malts we used, and increased the bittering hops. We wanted to give it slightly more mouthfeel and smoke aroma than the first batch we got out on draft. It now weighs in around 9% abv, but you can't tell that until you have had a couple. I had a four pack myself last night, with some dark Belgian chocolates, and I have to tell you, that's a little slice of heaven right there!

My wife and I had diner at Taco Mamacita in Edgehill Village tonight and had a couple of Sue's from the tap. WOW! GREAT BEER!!!!
This was the first time I'd tried Sue and I'm a believer...thanks.

So, she finally comes in bottles? That might make it a little easier to take some down to my family in Mississippi as opposed to my old trusty growler.
