The true identity of Working Title, the ale we previewed recently on the hand pull at Bank Street Brewhouse, now can be revealed: It is to be called Houndmouth, a hopped-up American Wheat Ale brewed in collaboration with the New Albany band of the same name.
But please note that Houndmouth isn't just any other band, and the beer we've brewed together isn't just another wheat -- as those of you who've heard the music, and tasted the cask-conditioned version, will quickly attest.
Malts: 50% white wheat, 50% Irish stout malt and a touch of Weyermann Carabelge.
Hops: CTZ and Cascade (dry-hopped)
Yeast: House Ale
Houndmouth just returned stateside from the band's first-ever European dates, and if you're unfamiliar with the music, listen at YouTube and then buy the EP on Rough Trade Records.
This Saturday night (March 2) at 9:00 p.m., the members of Houndmouth will be at Bank Street Brewhouse to taste the beer. You are invited to do the same.
Looking ahead to April 26, Houndmouth will open the Iroquois Amphitheater's 2013 season with a headlining show, backed by Joe Pug and Ranger. Seeing as NABC continues trying to get craft beer into Iroquois ... and the virtues of New Albany-brewed Houndmouth accompanying Houndmouth from New Albany make perfect sense ... maybe we'll get lucky.
