Another Coolship collaboration is coming, but you won’t be able to drink it until next year.
According to Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø, owner of Evil Twin Brewing, the Brooklyn, N.Y.-based company collaborated with Prairie Artisan Ales in Tulsa, Okla. to brew a second incarnation of Coolship Truck on Nov. 17. The first release of the spontaneously fermented ale came in at 5 percent ABV and was brewed in December 2013. The beer takes its name from the fact that Prairie attached its mash tun into the bed of a pickup truck when cooling down the wort used in the final product.
Traditionally used in Belgium, a coolship is a large, shallow steel pan about a foot deep that is used to both cool down wort after it is brewed and to expose the resulting concoction to naturally occurring yeasts and bacteria that are in the air.
While specifics on bottle count, bottle size and ABV are not yet known, the first release was limited to around 800 12-ounce bottles. Jarnit-Bjergsø told Tenemu in an email that the new Coolship Truck would be released “about a year from now.”
