MKE Brewing Co. releases 2015 Walk Off Tripel
Summer is officially here and so is MKE Brewing Co’s second release for their limited edition Destination Local Series, Walk Off Tripel. Like the rare play in baseball, this beer is dramatic, exciting and a game changer. Fermented with a true Belgian yeast strain this blonde ale has fruity aromas, earthy tones and a crisp dry mouth feel with hints of tangerine, apples and anise. Bright effervescent carbonation from the bottle conditioning dances across the palate and playfully masks the 8% ABV. Hints of yeast play in a refreshing backdrop of wheat and oats marrying all the flavors and aromas together rounding out to warm finish. Like all the Destination Local Series, Walk Off Tripel is available in 750ml bottles. Walk Off Tripel will be available in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois and North Dakota.
Look for these additions to the limited release Destination Local Series throughout the year: Recombobulation Imperial Black Ale, Louie’s Cherry Bounce and Elf’s Lament Spiced Belgian Dubbel.
About the Destination Local Series
Some of the finest craft beers in the country can be found right here in the Midwest. “Buying Local” no longer means around the corner or across town. We want to take craft beer drinkers on a journey with different styles of beer by pushing the boundaries with barrel aging and utilizing unique blends of malts, hops and spice. The Destination Local series is a true artisanal approach to craft brewing. Small, handcrafted, limited release batches where you can explore different styles without ever checking a bag or sitting in the dreaded middle seat.
ABOUT MKE BREWING CO.
MKE Brewing Co. started as a brewpub, the Milwaukee Ale House, in October 1997 in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward. Founder Jim McCabe took his love for home brewing and his engineering background to design a functional and robust 15 bbl brewpub when Milwaukee was still a lager town. Fast forward 10 years and over 300 innovative beers later to November 2007 when MKE Brewing Co kegged off their first brew at their 2nd St. Brewery located in the trendy Walkers Point neighborhood. The 50 bbl brewing and packaging facility allowed MKE Brewing Co to meet the demand of their ever-popular Ale House brews and start brewing more styles that they always wanted to. A WDNR Green Tier Certified brewery, MKE Brewing Co. prides themselves on flexible and energy saving efforts to reduce their carbon footprint. With initiatives such as the 28 solar hot water panels on the roof, a bio-diesel boiler fueled by fryer oil from local restaurants, clean wastewater conservation, donating spent grain to local urban farm Growing Power and as the first micro-cannery in Wisconsin, MKE Brewing Co is at the forefront of Green Tier conservation efforts. McCabe along with principal partner Jim Hughes have experienced the most productive year in their brief history producing 12,000 bbls in 2014. MKE Brewing Co. is committed to creating innovative, well-balanced, approachable beers that appeal to the craft beer aficionado and new craft beer drinker alike. Head brewer Robert Morton and his team pride themselves on taking the artisan approach to brewing, using only the finest local ingredients and never making compromises.
