I’ve had a request to write a blog about our Haunted Series since many people have been asking about it. This is something I started shortly after coming to work here at the Yak and Yeti Brewpub. The Haunted Series is a tap-handle that we serve beers from that were barrel-aged or produced on our 1/2bbl pilot brewing system. These beers are typically “special” in some fashion. The “special” could mean, hoppier (double IPA or Barleywine), more alcohol (RIS or Dark Belgian Strong), Belgian-American fusion (White IPA or Grand Cru), Fruit/sour (Blueberry Tart or Belgian Cherry Sour), Barrel-aged (Sherpa Prima, Oaked IPA, Oaked-Coast Glutton), Vegetable (Ginger Beer, Pumpkin Ale), Crazy (Red Hots Wheat, Fenugreek Belgian or Dragon’s Wort) or maybe a collaboration beer that we’ve done in the past (Very Berry Stout, Green Tea Pale, Imperial Common, etc).
The name comes from the allegation that our house is haunted. So I figured if a beer is produced in a haunted kettle and fermented in a haunted vessel and put into haunted kegs and served from a haunted tap into a haunted glass, we should called the Haunted Beer Series!
The fact of the matter is most of these beers are one-of-a-kind that you’ll only find at the Yak and Yeti Brewpub. If you want to try most of them you’ll have to come in quite often since the batches are so small they go fast (about one per week). Due to supply issues, we do not sell growlers of these beers. For consistency sake, we serve all the Haunted Series in 10oz Belgian Style glasses.
Come join me in my experimental journey by ordering your next glass to be part of the Haunted Beer Series.
