Permutation is our experimental series of small batch offerings, showcasing the unique visions and innovative concepts developed by our brewing and cellar crew.
Brewed at our Fort Point location, Permutation #89 is our first take on a dark lager. Drawing inspiration from classic German Schwarzbiers, Permutation #89 pairs richly roasted malt aromas with a clean lager fermentation to deliver notes of bread crust, iced coffee, faint smoke, and caramelized nuts. The palate follows closely with rounded flavors of bittersweet chocolate and toasted bread extending right through to the finish balanced by a spicy and delicate noble hop bitterness. Pouring a deep umber brown with copper highlights and a large persistent off-white head, Permutation #89 has a medium body and smooth, drying finish.
