A single release that was made with two inspirational classics in mind – Saison de Pipaix and Orval. Expect vintage character in this complex barrel aged beer featuring Mecca Grade Malt at it’s core.
Scrap Iron was brewed as a nod to two specific historic beers from Belgium – Saison de Pipaix and Orval. Both of those are legendary and rooted well in the past, with fascinating profiles that exude character and individuality. Many modern interpretations of Belgian-style beers seem to miss that mark, relying on a narrow spectrum within aroma, flavor, mouthfeel and finish. Instead, the Scrap Iron strives to integrate layers rarely seen anymore – metallic notes, semi-coarse bitterness, restrained Brettanomyces, dry-hopping with low oil varieties, and delicate yet purposeful spicing.
