A Note on This Beer
Ingredients: Citra, El Dorado, and Rakau Hops lead the fruity charge, with extra boldness from Kviek Voss yeast. Flavor: A citrusy blast of fresh peaches and pithy grapefruit, while Kviek Voss backs it all up with constant notes of orange-citrus. Mouthfeel: Brewed with enough Oats to make a Quaker shake, this beer is fluffier than an unkempt baby lamb.
Stellwagen knows that an award-winning IPA* doesn’t leave all the work to the hops — it needs the right yeast strain, too.
There are all kinds of yeast strains, and it takes a lot of research and experience to get a grasp on each one’s impact. And, after you taste We Are Your Oat-verlords, you’ll be an expert on the strain known as Kviek Voss!
Kviek (pronounced: “ka-wike”) is a group of Norwegian yeast cultures that have been used in brewing for centuries by Nordic people. In fact, “kviek” is just the Norwegian word for “yeast!”
These yeasts have been passed down, shared, and reused by families and neighbors for generations. And that’s why the Kviek Voss in today’s juicebomb is so special — its entire citrusy history has its roots in one specific farmstead in Voss, Norway.
Locking down this pillowy, citrus-laden brew is more than a chance to show off your newfound yeast knowledge. It’s a chance to connect with an ancient brewing history with roots halfway across the globe!
