This one has been in the archives for a while, but it’s too cold to drink, so I have nothing new to share!

This collaboration between Stillwater Artisanal and Against the Grain Brewery started when, as Stillwater puts it on the label, “the boys at Against the Grain made a beer based on a fictional ‘sexy man’ and uhh, his sheep friend.”

If you know your beer, you know that refers to Against the Grain’s Rico Sauvin, a double IPA made with Nelson Sauvin hops. In keeping with the theme, Stillwater took that Rico Sauvin base and turned it into an even sexier Farmhouse Ale brewed with added passion fruit juice and mango juice. It’s part of Stillwater’s remix series of collaborations.

I love a good farmhouse ale, and this didn’t disappoint me. From the label to the beer inside, it was all good. Cheers!

Are you ready to watch the Windowsill whip? Great! There will be no nae naes, though.

Maryland’s Oliver Brewing Company and Stillwater Artisanal—a gypsy brewery based in Brooklyn, NY—have collaborated on many beers. Although Oliver started in 1993, and Stillwater is just a baby (2010), the two seem to work really well together. This is the first time I’ve had the pleasure of hosting one of them on my Windowsill, but it won’t be the last.

The Whipped 2.0 was a really interesting choice for my first from this team. It’s a double IPA brewed with over 500 lbs of pureed mangos, flaked oats, lactose (for mouthfeel) and vanilla beans. The hop profile is actually really nice, too. 130 lbs of Citra and Simcoe hops are used to give it a nice, juicy, tropical deliciousness. Top top it all off, it’s a Nitro beer! This brew combines everything, from aroma to flavor to mouthfeel. Superb effort!
