Shmaltz Brewing Brings a Whole New Funky for 2014!
Now brewing exclusively in Clifton Park, NY.
Fresh off the packaging line at Shmaltz Brewing’s brand new Upstate New York brewery, Funky Jewbelation® is the latest Limited Engagement in the brewery’s bold and beautiful Barrel-Aged Series. This year’s hand crafted recipe of Funky Jewbelation® features a unique blend of seven ales from the Shmaltz beer lineup aged in bourbon and rye whiskey barrels, and hustles in at 9.4% alc. Funky Jewbelation® is an expert mash-up of Jewbelation 15® (aged 18 months), Messiah Nut Brown Ale® (aged 3 months), Bittersweet Lenny’s R.I.P.A.® (aged 12 months), Reunion® (aged 6 months), Origin® (aged 6 months), Rejewvenator® (aged 6 months), and Death of a Contract Brewer® (aged 4 months). Funky Jewbelation® is now nationally available in 22 oz. bottles and a limited amount of draft at select bars.
“Funky Jewbelation 2014 embodies Shmaltz’s commitment to the craftsmanship of truly exceptional beers,” says Shmaltz Brewmaster Paul McErlean. “Funky has been aged in Buffalo Trace Bourbon and Sazarac and Willett Rye whiskey barrels. It’s a monumental blend of our favorite ales that we’ve lovingly nurtured for the past couple years. Since some of the beers were contract brewed and some brewed at our new brewery in Clifton Park, this Funky offering bridges our old life with our new. Funky Jewbelation 2014 glistens a deep ruby color with a big, tart, sour cherry flavor and a malty earth aroma. A lovely puckering is complemented by subtle hints of bourbon, charred wood, molasses and light notes of vanilla.”
