BABBC Roggenbier

This German specialty ale is well known for its predominant use of malted rye. Brewers from both Bloomington Brewing Co. and Black Acre contributed to the formulation of this special single batch of ale.

BABBC Roggenbier was brewed with 51% imported German malted rye, with the balance of the grain bill including several varieties of malted barley and a small amount of wheat.

The beer was fermented by a hefeweizen yeast strain, and hopped with a mixture of German and American hops.

BABBC Roggenbier delivers an unusual flavor complexity: medium-bodied with a bready, malty aroma up front, then chocolate and banana bread, finishing with a wonderful bitter bite from the rye and hops.
