On June 4th, 2018, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of a cake shop owner who chose not to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. One year after the Court decision, we chose to celebrate marriage equality by hosting a wedding in our Elysian Capitol Hill location. Cake Topper was brewed and released in honor of that special day. It was a huge hit at the wedding, so we decided to spread the love this year in cans.
Style

Deceptive, and somewhat treacherous, this blackberry Belgian-style Tripel is one obsidian ticker you won’t mind holding. Aged in red wine barrels with blackberries, Black Hearted Bête is brewed from Pale malt and augmented with clear Belgian candi sugar and hopped with German Northern Brewer and Styrian Goldings. A mixed-culture secondary fermentation provides complex acidity and fruit aromas.
Style
Belgian-style Tripel
Tasting Notes
Black Hearted Bête spent almost two years in Januik wine barrels and possesses delicious stone fruit notes with a nice tartness, rounded out by a mixed berry and peach aroma. It’ll rip your heart right out.
