It’s about that time of year when we trade in our sunny shandys and summer ales for something we can really cozy up to on a chilly night. We’ve seen the aisles fill up with pumpkin spice & everything nice, but frankly – we’re bored with the gourds. Presenting your fall beer alternative, Yamma Jamma Harvest Ale, our ode to crunchy leaves, casseroles and sweater weather. Brewed with real sweet potatoes and a signature blend of spices, Yamma Jamma is your call to the fall.
Each batch of Yamma Jamma is made with 240 pounds of real sweet potatoes so you can rest assured that what’s on the can matches what’s in the can. This year we’ve tweaked the recipe of our harvest ale to accentuate its complex malt profile and provide more body. Our fall seasonal beer is brewed with ginger, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Expect flavors of mellow yam and spices, nestled in an oaty-nutty malt ‘crust’ – yep, sweet potato pie in a glass. Yamma Jamma pairs perfectly with Halloween candy and horror movies, but also compliments your uncle’s bad jokes at thanksgiving.
Looking to get your yam on? Find it in cans and on draft at your favorite bars, restaurants and liquor stores. Plus, join us at Indeed on September 15th for a Yamma Jamma Flight Night and Tent Sale. We’ll be serving up our harvest ale, a nitro version, a cypress and vanilla bean infusion and for the first time ever – Yamma Jamma Alabama Slamma. This year, leave the pumpkins for carving - and go yam.
Bottles up! Indeed Brewing is thrilled to announce our first-ever bottle release from Wooden Soul, our series of funky, wild, and sour barrel-aged beers. We’ve filled, corked and hand labeled with love, all so you can take Wooden Soul: Heliotropic near, far, and wherever you may roam.
The original gangster of the Wooden Soul series, Heliotropic is a Belgian-style Brett Saison ale aged in white wine barrels, weighing in at 7.3% ABV and 20 IBU. It first began as a Saison in our Derailed Series, before making its way to Wooden Soul. Heliotropic is brewed with Dupont yeast, then finished with Brux III and Brettanomyces Claussinii. The brew is moved into white wine barrels, where it ages for five to six months, allowing the brett to take up a healthy residency – building those funky flavors. In each bottle, you’ll find straw colored beer with a copper glow. Expect to be greeted with aromas of tropical fruit, grape, and earthy funk. This carefully crafted beer is dry, tart, and well balanced, with moderate to high carbonation. Sip away.
Want to get your paws on a bottle, thirsty creatures? Your first chance will be at the official Heliotropic Bottle Release in Indeed’s main taproom on July 25th. This special, ticketed event will include: a full pour of Heliotropic; a flight of Heliotropic with peaches, Heliotropic with pluots, and dry-hopped Heliotropic; and a paired flight of hand-selected meats and cheeses provided by the amazing team at Chowgirls Killer Catering, plus – we’ve lassoed Wooden Soul Head Brewer Adam Theis to talk about the beer and the barrel-aging program. Most importantly, you will get exclusive access to the first-ever bottle run of Heliotropic, with your bottle signed by Brewer Adam (limit one). Don’t miss this event, because we won’t pour one out for you.
Tickets to the Heliotropic Bottle Release are $50, inclusive of tax and gratuity, and can be purchased in person during taproom business hours, or online here. Please note tickets are limited and non-refundable. Remaining bottles of Wooden Soul: Heliotropic will be available for sale on a limited basis from the brewery beginning Thursday July 28th.
