Solidarity in 2011.

Dave and Josh brewed a double batch of NABC Solidarity at Bank Street Brewhouse on Friday and Saturday. There'll be another half-batch to follow. Here's a view of the mash on Friday.

As a Baltic Porter, circa 8% abv, Solidarity lends itself to wood aging. We have a couple of rye whiskey barrels ...

... and a total of seven oak barrels formerly used for wine (comprising three different previous usages). Solidarity will fill these, with special releases coming as they mature.

There will be enough non-wood-aged Solidarity for 150 or so cases of bombers for release to Indiana and Kentucky, and the forthcoming half-batch more will be brewed to cover draft needs, both on premise and distribution.
