Schlafly Beer is adding a second release to its Ibex Series.
The St. Louis, Mo.-based brewery will be releasing The Eleventh Labor, a 4.2 percent ABV berliner weisse brewed with apricots. The name of the beer comes from Greek mythology, wherein Hercules is charged with completing 12 different impossible tasks to atone for his act of killing his six sons and his wife Megara. The 11th labor referenced in the name was for stealing the “golden apples” from the garden of Hesperides.
This is the second release in Schlafly’s Ibex series, which “are intended to harness the imaginative talents of our brewing team and create a space where unique ingredients, barrel-aging processes, and inspired styles can be showcased and appreciated,” according to the brewery. The first beer in the series was Lazy Ballerina, a 7.35 percent ABV French-style saison brewed with Chambourcin grapes from Missouri-based Chandler Hill Vineyards before being aged in barrels from the same vineyard for three months.
According to filings with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), The Eleventh Labor will be packaged in 750ml bottles. An email sent to the brewery for additional details was not immediately returned.
