New Glarus Enigma

The brainchild of head brewer and owner Dan Carey, Enigma was originally brewed in 2003, but was first bottled and released in 2006 as part of the Thumbprint Series of beers at New Glarus. The Thumbprint Series, according to Carey, “…are still brewed with the beer enthusiast in mind. Thumbprint beers are brewed in small batches that are intended to be available for one time only. However, popular demand has caused some styles to return. This is my own thumbprint, to let everyone know this is a real New Glarus handcrafted beer! Cheers.”
