NABC's V is now on tap.

With event fatigue setting in, NABC decided not to hold special ceremonies celebrating the brewery's fifth anniversary, but there was a special beer created for the occasion, and it's a powerhouse.

Brewed in honor of the New Albanian Brewing Company's past (Community Dark first rolled off the line in late October, 2002), V (fifth anniversary) is Jesse's and Jared's latest contemporary contribution to NABC myth and legend.

Here are the specs:

ABV: Circa 10%
IBUs: 80
5 MALTS: Maris Otter, 2-row, Caramalt, special B, aromatic
5 HOPS, 5 HOP ADDITIONS: Simcoe, Saaz, Nugget, Galena, Centennial
YEAST: House London
NOTES: 5,555 second boil (92 minutes, 35 seconds)

We'll dispense some now, then cellar the rest for future enjoyment, including a few kegs with oak chips.
