Hapax Legomenon

Sour Belgian Grapefruit Ale aged in Gin Barrels

Did you know?

Hapax Legomenon refers to a word or form that occurs only once in a document. And often, it is a word that you’ll find only one time in an author’s entire oeuvre. For example, Shakespeare used the word “satyr” exactly once in all of his writings.

Hapax Legomenon began as a Belgian-style Tripel brewed with rice and aged in gin barrels. Before they became gin barrels, these barrels were used to age bourbon, giving the final beer a unique quality.

After some time in barrels, we blended in some American Grapefruit Sour Ale. The strong grapefruit character from this beer plus the spice from the gin helps to create an interesting “gin and juice” feel.

When it’s all said and done, we think we can safely say that this will be the only occurrence of a gin barrel-aged Belgian-style Rice Tripel blended with an American Grapefruit Sour Ale to be found in our oeuvre.

Hapax Legomenon is 9.4% ABV
