In this beer blog, we are going to get into a beer from Fish Brewing and it is Hobbit Tripel. This brewery has team with the Hobbit The Movie to brew a series of beers. Fish Brewing was founded in 1993 in Olympia, Washington. There is not too much information on this brewery. Let us get into beer.
It has a cloudy copper color with a white constant head on this special movie beer release. The smell has a Belgium species with orange coriander notes. The taste has a creamy orange coriander to Belgium species notes. The aftertaste is dry and crisp finish. It is a sipping beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
The Otc Bolg
The spawn of Azog the Defiler, Bolg, like his sire is a giant, plae Orc. Keeper of the dungeons of Dol Guldur, Bolg takes pleasure in torture – his armor is embellished with the bones and blood of his victims. Powerfully built, this Orc is afraid of nothing and no one – that is, until he comes up against a surpising foe.
Here is their website and twitter and addresses:
In the end, this is not a new way of selling beer. Beer and other products have been doing product placement in movies. Now, TV series and movies are now teaming up with breweries to make a series of beers to support that project. Ommegang has done an overall really great job on their beers for the Games Of Thrones. I cannot think of any other examples of this situation. I love my tripels or triples. This beer is pretty average. I am not a huge fan of it. It is missing something and I do not know what it is. I believe it will sell some bottles because it has the Hobbit logo on the bottle. If you see the bottle, I would at least try it. If you are a fan of the movies, you will be picking it up. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
