St Arnold Divine Tonight at Moth

by Steven Doyle

Sigel’s has a limited supply of the St. Arnold Divine Reserve. Only 4,123 cases of this IPA were produced, and you may also find the limited beer in kegs and casks. There are 35 casks available and Meddlesome Moth will be tapping theirs tonight at 5:00 sharp. You may also catch the keg tapped next Tuesday at Common TableThe brew was appropriately bottled on St Patrick’s Day 2011 and boasts an 8.9% ABV.

The press release we were sent today describes:

The color is deep amber with a light, creamy head. The nose starts off with a touch of citrus but then turns decidedly into peaches. The taste starts off with creamy malt resulting from the pale 2 row and caramel malts and Saint Arnold yeast. The hop bitter starts low then builds to a crescendo, but always maintains a balance even in its big finish. The hop flavor continues to be peaches, an interesting manifestation of the Columbus, Simcoe and Centennial hops. This is the first Divine Reserve that we have filtered. This decision was made to make the hop flavors brighter, plus it would have been a bottling nightmare with all the hop bits in it. This beer is best enjoyed at 45° or even a little warmer. Though the recipe and style indicate this beer to be enjoyed fresh, we expect this beer to develop interestingly over the years.

Just in time because these pretzels are making me thirsty. Cheers.

    That’s gotta be an April Fools’ Joke…DR tends to be gone pretty quickly…if you’re not foolin’, would you care to share where you found it?

    It was tapped first in the Metroplex at Square Burger in McKinney, they got a half barrel and did not have a tapping party so you can still try it there but not for long.
