...[W]e wanted a beer that was more appropriate for the fall season. Something that suggested the rich and roasty flavors that we come to associate with cooler temperatures. Tumbler is made with fresh roasted malt straight from the roasting kilns and into the brewery. We have an agreement with our maltsters to deliver our malt within days of cooling for a much more pronounced roasted-grain flavor to the beer. Think of coffee…coffee fresh out of a roaster, tastes much different from coffee that’s been sitting on the shelf for weeks. The same principals apply to malt. These grains have a similar caramelization and volatile aroma profile, and we want to harness it as quickly as possible.
