November 13, 2008 — Baker's Brew Seasonal Beer Tapping
Meet Brewmaster Tom Flores and his New Head Brewer Maggie Lenz from 4-6pm for our seasonal Beer Tapping of "Baker's Brew".

Baker's Brew - This Beer was inspired by the flavor of Banana Nut Bread, a Wonderfully aromatic baked good. The malts we used were a combination of four different types, which lends a variety of roasted and nutty flavors. The malt flavor in this beer is a dominant part of its overall character.

We employed a special strain of weizen teast for fermentation in order to develop a faint banana and clove character. For additional spiciness, we added vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove to the brewkettle. This helps to amplify the clove flavor which the yeast naturally produces. Additionally, as a compliment to the spices, we dry-hopped this Beer with Cascade hops. The combination of the hops and other spices creates a flavor characterized by subtle complexity, especially in the aroma
