Day 184 Drink: Furthermore Knot Stock
Furthermore Beer got its start in 2006 in Spring Green, Wisc. The brewery makes a number of beers with an odd twist on traditional flavors and ingredients.
Furthermore Knot Stock uses cracked black pepper that is boiled in a sack and then cold-infused in an American pale ale that features Northern Brewer Hops. The brewery owners got the idea for the beer from an Italian cookie that used black pepper to add spice to its flavor.
Furthermore Knot Stock pours an amber gold color with a thick off white head. The black pepper is clear in the aroma. At 65 IBUs there is plenty of hop flavor in a rich and coating ale.
