Bow Tie Daddy
Berliner Weisse Style
Bow Tie Daddy is a refreshing and clean sour beer fermented with Lactobacillus. Without fruit and on the stronger side of the scale, this is Dugges version of the traditional Berliner Weisse. Prost!
After playing around with Lactobacillus fruit beers for a couple of years, we wanted to make a clean sour. Throwing around the idea, other features came to. We wanted to put a bit of wheat malts in there. We wanted to dry hop it a bit. And, naturally (or not) we wanted to get a Frank Zappa reference in there. After a few tweaks of the recipe (and more than one Zappa reference tested) Bow Tie Daddy came to be. We call it a Berliner Weisse Style, adding the Style as our American colleagues do. Pointing out that every aspect of the beer is just a little bit 'more' than it's European, or in our case, German, counterparts.
