NABC artwork: Jasmine the Mastiff.

Resident artist Tony Beard label art sets the stage for brewer Jared Williamson's preview of Jasmine the Mastiff, a new NABC beer that's coming very soon:

I want to bring everyone up to speed on a new project called Brewer’s Best Friend Series – basically, three beers made in honor of Jesse Williams's and my canine companions (yes, this idea came from John Maier of Rogue and his dog, the late Brewer).

First up (brewed 2-16-07) is: Jasmine the Mastiff Sweet Stout.

Malt: 2-row, roasted barley, chocolate

Hops: East Kent Goldings and Fuggles (for bittering only)

Spices: Lactose sugar, spiced Mexican chocolate, honey

O.G.: 1073

ABV: Circa 7%

IBUs: 36

The mastiff is the gentle giant of English-bred dogs -- loyal, noble, big and lazy for the most part.
