New Beer Release at Fleur De Lis Brew Works
Friday, June 29, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 12:00 am
Two new beers will be released June 29. The first, Tres Bonne Biere, pale ale, means “very good beer” in French. The second is Lost Bikini, coconut stout.
The pale ale is a collaboration between Finger Lakes Fermentis, home brew club, and the brewery. The home brew club developed the recipe along with Jon Paul’s input and recommendations to meet the minimum farm brewery requirements of 20% NYS ingredients. The club brewed with Jon Paul earlier this spring. Part of the agreement to using the Finger Lakes Fermentis’ recipe was naming the new brew. The club chose Très Bonne Bière. Jon Paul continues, “I love this name; it is French and also lives up to its name: Very good beer.”
The beer finishes true to American pale ale style with a beautiful, translucent, golden color and a sturdy white head. The flavor is crisp, refreshing. The malt and hop profiles are well balanced with just enough bitterness to justify the American pale ale style.
The second release is Lost Bikini, Coconut Chocolate Stout. The flavors are derived from toasted coconut and a rich malt roasted to enhance chocolate flavors. Jon Paul says, “this beer can be labor intensive with toasting all the shredded coconut. After the first sip, people will grasp why I make it with real coconut. The taste is spectacular, definitely something not achievable by a shortcut.”
The stout pours a lovely dark brown color with tan head. Jon Paul says, “this beer is less filling than a porter style. The malt adds a delicious toastiness and rich mouthfeel. And,oooh the coconut!”
Both brews in addition to 10 others, local wine, and hand crafted root beer will be available exclusively in the Craft Beer Parlour starting June 29 from 11 am-9 pm. The beer is sold by the glass, as part of a flight or to go in growlers.
The brewery is open five days a week. Visit the brewery’s website for current hours & tap list.
