One Offs and Short Batches #4: “Velour Jumpsuit” featuring Nomadic Beerworks & Crafty Brothas
On Saturday, November 18, Nomadic Beerworks in Austin released a new collaboration beer named Velour Jumpsuit with Darnell Gardner and Chris Washington, jointly known in the Houston and Austin beer community as the Crafty Brothas. The release, Velour Jumpsuit, is a 10.6% alcohol by volume (ABV) Imperial Spiced Peach Blonde Ale that is flavor forward with
hints of peach and spice, and finishes smooth on the palate like a beer much lower in ABV.
When asked how the project came about Chris replied, “The guys here at Nomadic are really good people and we got to talking one night about maybe doing a collaboration together, and they were both really open to the idea. We sat down over there (a booth off to the side near the bar area) and went over the details of it and came up with this.” Darnell, the well known and respected beertender at both Elder Son Brewing and Under the Radar, and Chris are no strangers to collaborations in the brewing industry in both Houston and Austin. The duo has released several other beers in both areas, including the reoccurring Bruderbier with Elder Son, Pullman with Turkey Forest Brewing, Cold Darn Ale with No Label Brewing and the most recently released Night Grooves with Ghost Note Brewing in Dripping Springs.
Unfortunately for the Houston area crowd, Velour Jumpsuit is a brewery release only at Nomadic, but bottles of the beer can be purchased to go while supplies last. In case you are in the Austin area soon, I highly suggest you stop by Nomadic and check Velour Jumpsuit out.
