CONTROVENTO , always against the grain.
Vento Forte has contributed to lowering the average ABV of the beers offered by the market to the sound of Session IPAs. With this collaboration we want to emphasize how, in our view, we need beers that can amaze while being drinkable large quantities.

The challenge was to create the hoppiest Session IPA we’ve ever made, while maintaining balance and cleanliness.

With Andrea we brewed CONTROVENTO, a 4.5% IPA session. Loral, Citra and El Dorado are the hops we used to enhance their freshness.

 

P.S .: The label is a reinterpretation of our Mundaka, the house of surf (a sport so dear to Andrea), in a windsock perspective.

 CROCCANTE is our new collaboration with Other Half (New York), a brewery that we consider among the best in the world and to which we are very close.

We have created a 10% Imperial Stout with a full body and a very creamy mouthfeel.

Fermented with black cherry and conditioned with the addition of vanilla, cocoa and hazelnut.

The challenge of this collaboration was to create a stout to remember one of the most famous ice creams of our childhood: “A creamy vanilla-flavored ice cream with a soft filling of black cherry, enriched with a covering of lean cocoa with pieces of hazelnuts”.

On the nose, in fact, the notes of cocoa and hazelnut stand out. In the mouth it is soft and creamy with an “amarena” filling that cleans the palate with its light acidity.

We are now in a period dominated high ABV beer that, having a greater extraction of flavours and aromas of hops, tend to amaze and capture more attention of the fans.

Despite this, together with Sam, we brewed a Session IPA, 4,0% vol., hopped with Citra, Mosaic, Loral and Ekuanot. Double dry hopped with Ekuanot and Loral fermented with Vermont yeast. Full bodied and creamy despite the low ABV.

It’s name, If you like double IPA drink 2 of THESE, was born from a playful banter during the choice of the beer recipe that we wanted to create together, we were undecided between a Double IPA and a Session IPA.

The label design is inspired by a famous Italian advertising of a detergent box, reinterpreting it, “If you want a double IPA, drink two of these.”
