Brewer's Notes: Three Rings was made in conjunction with the large donor of the Don’t Be Mean to People fundraising campaign, Scott Herpolshimer.

 

Scott and his partner raise Golden Retrievers, including one prize pup named Hazel.  It seemed appropriate to find a style through which we could pay homage to both the Goldens and hazelnuts.

 

The recipe is a pretty straightforward Tripel: lots of Pilsner malt and Vienna malt.  To give it a depth of character underneath what we knew would be some flavoring, we added in rye, unmalted wheat, and a titch of Abbey malt.
