Spindrift Announces Bottle Series and Brand

(Dartmouth, NS) - Out of the Hold is a new family of brands under the Spindrift Brewing corporate umbrella. The releases will always be bottle conditioned, often barrel aged/fermented with bottle sizes varying some between releases with the most common size being 500 ml. Each release will have it’s own name and label and some of which will return in subsequent years and others just being one offs. Single releases will range from 400 to 2000 bottles to start. They will always be available at the brewery and often Halifax's private stores. The Out of the Hold program will begin to focus on relevant flavours, styles and brewing techniques, ranging from Imperial Stouts, to Sours, to Saisons. 
There are two releases tomorrow November 1st, two more on November 15th, and another on December 1st. The series will really kick into action in the new year when they are able to adhere to a true production schedule for the program.

Releases tomorrow are 'Cherry Brett Beer' and 'Golden Brett Beer'. Both use our Pils as a base and have been aged extensively in French oak barrels previously used for red wine. Cherry Brett Beer was fermented with Brettanomyces bruxellensis, and conditioned on dark sweet cherry puree for many months. Golden Brett Beer was fermented with Brettanomyces bruxellensis Vrai. Both are carbonated to give elegant effervescence, they are great showcases of the two brett strains used.
