Here are some details on this year’s Triton batch from assistant brewer Greg Doroski’s (pictured above with head brewer DJ Swanson) blog:

– In 24 hours of brewing, spread across 2 days, we crafted 30 bbls of one ass-kicking beer!

– With an OG of nearly 1.096 (23 Plato), this year’s Triton should finish up around 10% ABV.

– DJ’s recipe blended together a ton (actually almost 2) of Maris Otter and Pale Malts, with a touch of dark Crystal Malt (note the color difference between the Pale and Crystal Malts below).

– Additions of US Magnum, Golding, and Centennial hops provide substantial balancing bitterness, and ample hop flavor and aromas.
