FIRST EDITION BEERS
Our head brewer has been busy experimenting with the artisan ingredients necessary to craft the first batch of beers for The Whitechapel Projects. The end result includes three distinct craft nano-brews each offering a different flavor and composition.
The descriptions for our first batch of brews are below and include a Pale Ale, IPA and Subtly Smoked Porter! While we continue to perfect our recipes, we are sharing some of our favorite selections.
Which of these brews are you looking forward to?
Clean, bright and crisp with low bitterness and light notes of citrus, pine, apricot and peach with tropical notes.
Tasting Notes: Pale Ale is brewed with Two-Row, Crystal and Victory Malts, which contribute a warm “biscuity” character, with hop additions of Citra, Centennial and Amarillo. This beer is then dry-hopped* heavily with Citra and Centennial, to offer citrus and floral aromas. It will pair well foods such as shellfish, fruits or herb infused dishes.
Pungent and pleasantly bitter with hints of spiciness and bites of citrus and passion fruit.
Tasting Notes: Our IPA is brewed with Two-Row, Crystal and Carapils malts with hop additions of Simcoe, Cascade, Centennial and Columbus, which provides a citrusy and slightly woody flavor element.
This brew is then dry-hopped with large amounts of Simcoe and Cascade. Simcoe boasts several different aromas including passion fruit, pine, earthy, and citrus, it also has a strong bittering quality, while Cascade provides a flowery and spicy, citrus-like quality with slight grapefruit characteristics.
FUN FACT: The first mention of hops in the history books occurred in 822 AD.
SUBTLY SMOKED PORTER
Subtle earthy flavors with hints of smoke and traces of cherry flavors.
Tasting Notes: This Smoked Porter is brewed with malts such as Maris Otter, Cherry Beechwood, Peat, Carapils and Chocolate with additions of Cluster Hops, which provide a black currant aroma or flavor.
FUN FACT: The first reference of Porter, a dark and strong beer, occurred in London in 1721.
HONEY ROOT BEER:
Wild Flower Honey
Dried Guajillo Chiles
FUN FACT: Guajillo Chilies, pronounced gwah-HEE-yoh, are thick, leathery, dark-reddish-brown chiles that contain mild to moderate amounts of heat. The guajillo is one of the most commonly grown chiles in Mexico.
With a tulip beer glass in hand and a healthy appetite, The Whitechapel Projects is shaping up to be a destination for beer enthusiasts and foodies alike!
