The Take Away:
The Silent World is named after Jacques-Yves Cousteau’s classic film Le Monde du Silence (The Silent World) released in 1956. It was one of the first films to use underwater cinematography to show viewers aquatic life in color. You could say this beer, like the ocean, may be dark and mysterious on the surface but beautiful and inviting once you dive below. The goal for TSW is to have a lot of the traditional flavors beer drinkers may be familiar with in a stout: roast, cold brew, dark chocolate, nuttiness, but in a much smoother and lower intensity presentation. The beer is meant to have high drinkability with complex flavors that develop on the palate as the beer warms and you make your way down the pint. It’s a balance of malty flavors like caramel, roast, and toasted bread with the classic earthiness and floral/herb flavors from the German hops wrapped up in a clean, smooth lager package.
After visiting Moonlight Brewing in Sonoma County & drinking a beer called Death and Taxes, one of our brewers was inspired to create a black lager for one of our limited release innovation beers, and as such, we will be donating $1 per pint to organizations working to extinguish the wildfires in Sonoma County and to support relief efforts for those who have suffered losses.
