Let’s celebrate Women in craft beer on the Windowsill today!
Let’s kick off this Monday with a spotlight on a great woman in the craft beer game, Burial Beer Co.’s co-owner, Jess Reiser. She started out blogging about beer in Seattle and fell so deeply in love with beer culture that she, her husband and their friend Tim, co-founded Burial Beer in Asheville, NC. She had previously spent time in New Orleans, and the influence that time had on her life can be seen in the beer names and can labels that the company comes up with. We need more women and minorities in the craft beer game, and Jess Reiser is a role model for all that
The Skillet Donut Stout was quite the experience. Starting with that beautiful label art from David Paul Seymour. It’s stunning. The beer itself is an ode to the skillet. “Cold black iron. Never decaying, it is held to the fire to unearth impeccable flavor from whatever it holds. The skillet is our most trusted and daring tool of culinary ingenuity.”
Like the skillet, the Skillet Donut Stout pours a nice black color. It’s brewed with a blend of nine barley malts, a “healthy” helping of oats, molasses, and lactose, as well as lots and lots of coffee from @counterculturecoffee. I got a ton of coffee on the nose and in the flavor on this one, and I really, really liked it. Great stout!
As always, check out more great craft beer on my Instagram!
