Not to get lost in the shuffle of what has been a busy week so far, we wanted to announce the winner of our first collaborative cask competition with LA Ale Works. We received a lot of really awesome submissions, which I passed along to the LA Ale Works team of Kip & John. I removed the names from each submission to keep the results anonymous. John and Kip told me that there were a lot of really awesome ideas on the submission list but eventually they were able to come to a consensus on the winning entry, which is:
Toby’s winning submission had the following ingredients which will be added to LA Ale Works Saison:
- Priming Sugar: Coconut Sugar (Thai)
- Special Ingredient #1: Lemon Grass
- Special Ingredient #2: Kaffir Lime Leaf
- Special Ingredient #3: Ginger
- Targeted Pouring Location: City Tavern in Culver City
Congratulations Toby! That sounds like it will be an awesome addition of ingredients to a Saison.
Toby, Kip should be reaching out to you shortly to coordinate when you guys can get together to make the cask. I hope everyone enjoyed getting to be a part of the submission process and thank you to everyone who submitted entries. Many of you submitted more than one entry which I think is an awesome way to enter into this competition – the more entries the merrier.
Once the LA Ale Works guys can organize up an event to pour the cask at I will be sure to post it on here so that we can get as many members together to try Toby & LA Aleworks Cask.
