Help Lug Wrench Pick The Next Collaborative Beer

It will have been almost 18 months since the last time Tom and I were able to brew a Lug Wrench Collaborative Beer.  That dryspell is coming to an end, as it looks like Tom and his family will be taking the 500 mile trek to Rhode Island fir a visit at the end of March.  And you know what that means - its brew time!

Like the majority of our prior collaborative beers, we've typically focused on darker, high alcohol beer styles - beers that can cellar well for long periods of time.  When we are lucky enough to be in the same town again, Tom and I will often open one or two of these beers from the growing library as a way to look back at our collaborations. 

In planning for this upcoming brew in March, Tom and I threw around several different options and were able to narrow the list down to these six possibilities:
  • Russian Imperial Stout
  • Strong Scotch Ale
  • Baltic Porter
  • Eisbock
  • Flanders Brown Ale
  • Imperial Smoked Porter
Of course, picking which style to brew from the list is never easy we love too many of them.  So we thought - Why not let the readers decide?!? As a result, we put up a poll (on the right side of the page) and are asking all our visitors to let their voices be heard for what style of beer we should brew next.  Give it some thought.  Don't give it any thought.  Flip a coin.  Either way you do it, vote and help us out.  The results will be in our brewpot at the end of the month!

  1. I voted Eisbock, just because nobody makes them and they're a complete pain in the ass. I'd be happy to try any of these though...

  2. I don't want to sway the vote one way or another, but I certainly would not be disappointed if we brewed an Eisbock.
