The schtick-loving brew masters at Shmaltz Brewing Co. have debuted the eighth in their Limited Engagement Barrel-Aged series with Funky Jewbelation. This blend of six ales and lagers from the Shmaltz roster aged in bourbon and rye whiskey barrels boasts 9.4% alcohol. It is available in 22 oz. bottles and a limited amount of draft from April - June 2013.
The 2012 version of Funky Jewbelation won a Gold Medal at the 2012 World Beer Championships and this year’s brew is equally as funky, in the best sense of the word. Dark with rich notes of molasses, vanilla, pomegranate, and plum, the beer is complex but comforting.
Shmaltz Brewing Company was established in San Francisco in 1996 with their HE’BREW line, and now offers award-winning beers across 30 states and over 3,500 retailers. RateBeer.com ranked Shmaltz Brewing Company one of the “Top 50 Brewers in the World”. Funky Jewbelation is available in Austin at Whole Foods Downtown, Whip In, Central Market South Lamar, and other locations.
