More information about Boomerang bearing
Before Karl Linde invented the refrigeration system in 1873 and artificial cooling became possible to make beer last longer, the major brewing nations had different approaches to achieving this goal. The German, Austrian and Bohemian brewers used natural ice to store their beer in cellars throughout the summer. This is where the term "lager" comes from. Long and cold aging and storage gave and still give the beer a very round, harmonious aroma profile.
English brewers relied on the antibacterial and preservative effect of hops. To ensure that their ales survived the long sea voyages, they added hops to the beer when it was bottled in barrels. This also gave them a longer shelf life, but the hops also added their aromas. Today, we brewers refer to this technique as hop plugging or dry hopping. It experienced a veritable renaissance as a result of the craft beer revolution.
In our Boomerang, we combine both techniques in one beer. It is a pale lager, or more precisely a pale bock, which has enjoyed a long period of cold storage, but at the same time we refine it by cold hopping in the lager tank. The aromas of the Australian hops used, Victoria Secret, reminiscent of passion fruit, gooseberry and elderberry, combine in this way with the full malt body of a pale stout.
A beer that is fun to smell, to taste, to enjoy - with friends or alone in a deck chair.
