Every beer has a history of its own, strung together with each season’s harvest and poured forth into empty pints. Each sip we take taps into a living fossil, a relic passed down through generations as a recipe, and connects us with bygone civilizations and those still thriving today. In a small way, it brings the dead to life and humanizes epic figures.
Such is Great Waters Brewery’s New Centurian, a dark cask ale gleaned from a 100-year-old beer style, whose name invokes a renaissance of the past. This beer exclusive to the downtown St. Paul brewpub is a session beer at its finest: dark and full of flavor, yet not heavy or alcoholic. The best part of the experience is the fact it is a cask ale, naturally fermented and carbonated, served at around 50 degrees enhancing the roasted malt aromas to their maximum potential.
