Product details

Shugga High Strong Ale pours with a firey burnished orange hue, offering up sky-high flavors and aromas of fresh crusty bread, complex caramel, raisin, and fig, rounded out with a blunt nose of citrusy, piney, and slightly dank hops. Beyond the significantly high gravity malt foundation, a big dose of brown sugar helps this beer dry out a bit while simultaneously adding layers of slightly sweet toffee and maple. This is a real whopper of a beer, so don't bogart it - Shugga High is best consumed in good company.

Brad’s Notes:

Inspired by a hugely popular seasonal beer brewed on the west coast, Shugga High Barleywine is an interesting take on the American Barleywine style. The relatively simple malt bill lends a full, smooth sipping experience and delivers a huge wave of complementary flavors, while the medium-high bitterness and firm hop flavor to balance out the moderate sweetness of the malt. To crank things up a notch, a healthy dose of delicious brown sugar is added to encourage higher attenuation and also adds additional depth to the beer’s overall flavor, with notes of raisin and faint maple candy. This is quite a large beer, so be sure to give it time to age properly for all of the nuances to come together to form a cohesive array of flavors and to deliver an absolutely enjoyable sipping experience. Pairs perfectly with chilly evenings, crackling fires, s'mores, maduro wrapped cigars and CCR on cassette tape.

Good organized kit and simple to follow. Made a 2 liter starter using fast pitch and ferm took off within 8 hours. Transferred to secondary after 2 weeks and will leave it be for a few months. Will update once I taste it

Brown Shugga is one of my favorites. Being a seasonal beer, and being a bit harder to find I was thrilled to brew my own. I am a full plus month into conditioning but of course we like to steal a sample every now and then. I am going to brew a new batch and dry hop this one early. 8 weeks is to long to wait. Even gave a sample to SIL and he keeps asking when will it be ready. Answer: Not soon Enough!

Missing Grain...

I haven’t been able to make this beer yet as the grain was missing from the kit. I hope it’s on it’s way, can’t wait to get this beer brewing!
