A Note on This Beer
Transmitter Brewing is one of Thrillist’s 11 Best Breweries in New York State and a Draft Mag “Brewery to Watch” for their Belgian Ales. Today we’re giving you a taste of their Big Apple swagger at its booziest with the 10.4% ABV A4 Quadruple Ale.
This brewery isn’t about simply honoring Belgian tradition. Transmitter spends more than 8 hours meticulously cooking Belgian Candi sugar themselves to develop notes of deep raisin, fig, and dark, succulent cherries. They go a step further with complexity, infusing star anise, Tellicherry black peppercorns and grains of paradise for warmly spiced, savory flavors to round out the Quad’s chocolatey base.
New York now has over 400 breweries, but Transmitter stands out with their innovative recipes on classic Belgian beer styles. And they’re perfectionists: their beers are all bottle-only, limited releases, that never flow through a tap handle.
Their A4 has been bottle-conditioned for more than 6 months, smoothing out the booze and allowing the spices to suffuse. It will stand out at your next tasting party with its unique range of spices -- and you’ll earn bragging rights for introducing your friends to this boutique NYC hit brewery.
