New breweries typically take it easy for their first batch on a new system; especially if the new 30-barrel system is 93 times larger than their previous garage-housed system…. but that’s not our style.
We decided to rage with the most complex recipe in our repertoire, the grain-heavy imperial stout we so affectionately call Ziko’s Rage was our maiden voyage.
On July 29, 2015 we brewed Batch 001 at 26 Degree Brewing Company. This July 29, 2017 we celebrate Ziko’s two-year birthday! Come relive how it all began!
In addition to many other birthday festivities that will remain a surprise, we will be releasing some VERY special Ziko-related beers:
- VERY RARE>>>> Ziko’s Rage Batch 001 – that’s right, we saved a keg from our maiden voyage. This is the same batch that took silver in the Best Florida Beer Championship. Aged to perfection, you will definitely want to try this side-by-side with a current batch. This is VERY RARE and will only be available in draft form. Special Ceremonial Tapping at 2 PM.
- VERY DELICIOUS>>>> Jim Beam Bourbon Barrel Ziko’s Rage – available in wax-sealed bottles and on draft in the taproom. This fan-favorite has been aging in Jim Beam Bourbon barrels since September 2016. Barrel Rage will be in full effect!
- VERY COLLECTABLE…OR NOT>>>> 4-packs of Ziko’s Rage Cans – this will be our first ever release of Ziko’s Rage in cans! You definitely want to get your hands on what will ultimately be a collectors’ item…or more likely, what will definitely be the first can release of Ziko’s Rage.
- VERY SPECIAL>>>> Special Hourly Releases of Chocolate Cherry Ziko, Hazelnut Chocolate Ziko, Coffee Ziko, and more!
