In 2006, the Coastal Extreme Brewing Crew started the Cyclone Series, a clever idea before limited release beers were the norm. This clever idea produced 26 different beers ranging widely in taste, complexity, and lack of sleep for our brewers! We traveled through the alphabet, with no shortcuts, starting with Alyssa and now introducing, the last letter ‘Z’ for Zach, an imperial oatmeal stout.
Cyclone Zach is an intense beer, both in its brewing and flavor profile. Six mashes, rather than the usual two, were required to create this brew, leading to round the clock brewing. Boasting a 10.1% ABV Zach is truly a big and bold beer, but his most important characteristic is smoothness. To create Zach’s silky smooth flavor, the brewers combined extra tank conditioning time with the addition of the most flaked oat ever used in a Storm brew, to balance the otherwise over intense roasted backbone of the beer. This Cyclone will stand up to the test of time, our Brew Master recommends aging this beer for years to come.
Boasting 3 pounds of pumpkin per keg, coupled with lactose milk sugar, a touch of chocolate malt for a ruby/orange color, caramel and cara malts for sweetness and copious quantities of pale malt, the only ingredient left for this liquid pumpkin pie libation was spices. Staying true to RI, we sourced those spices locally from Spice Mill, located in Wakefield, RI. The mixture of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice and cloves will ‘warm you up with a cold one,’ all fall and winter long! Available: on draft and in bottles 9/1 – 12/31.
Newport Storm Pilsner is brewed as traditionally as possible and undoubtedly captures the essence of this historic beer style. The brewers start with a heavy dose of pale malt and a touch of Vienna malt to give this new brew a residual sweetness and depth. Unique to this beer is the exclusive use of Saaz hops in the boil which envelops the Pilsner in bitterness and flavor. The most important attribute to this style of beer is the authentic Czeh lager yeast and traditional longer fermentation time which produces favorable flavor and aroma of crisp green apple and lemon grass. After 4 weeks of conditioning, the Newport Storm Pilsner provides an exceptionally crisp and refreshing taste, perfect for those lazy summer days.
*Buyer beware: this unique brew can only be found in the 12 Sheets to the Wind Summer Variety Pack*
