Past, Present, Pretzel is an IPA features a hefty amount of wheat middlings from One Mighty Mill along with our standard pale malt, American Two Row, while it's hop bill is 100% Citra. Middlings are a highly nutritious, protein rich, non-flour product of the wheat milling process. Through this delicious collaboration we celebrate conservation and a symbiotic relationship between miller and brewer. The project started with wheat grown in Maine and milled in Massachusetts (“past”), it became a juicy, crisp IPA that you’re drinking or soon to drink (“present”), and post-brew-day we sent the spent grain back up to Lynn for the baking crew to make pretzels out of (“pretzel”). Along with showcasing a fun and engaging new recipe, we hope Past, Present, Pretzel gives us all a chance to think about local systems and economies that are supported by creative conservation.
Pouring a golden yellow color with above average haze, Past, Present, Pretzel swirls engaging tropical aromas of papaya, pineapple, diced cantaloupe, lemongrass and fresh citrus. The palate develops these flavors extending further with notes of ruby red grapefruit, honeydew, mixed berries, and ripe summer peaches. Accentuated by a light multigrain malt character and a rounded bite of pine, Past, Present, Pretzel has a medium body with a balanced and enjoyably mouthwatering finish.
