Off Color has announced the offical release day of their collaboration with Miller High Life, Eeek! The release will take place on October 15th at 11am at Off Color’s bottle shop.
Eeek! is an American Wild Ale brewed using the following process. Off Color blended all of their wild acidic and funky mixed cultures together with their house lactobacillus and set them loose on base Miler High Life wort. After a month of unregulated primary fermentation, they lagered Eeek! for an additional three weeks before bottling conditioning the beer with Champagne yeast. If that doesn’t sound like something you want to drink, you’re crazy!
