We'll Sleep When We're Dead

No Rest For The Wicked
No Rest For The Wicked

If No Rest For The Wicked is a metaphor for its makers, we are certainly in trouble. Between work-related insomnia, late nights, butt-crack-of-dawn early mornings, and sleep terrorists (sometimes referred to as children), collectively we are not logging a lot of hours slept. But I'm hoping that the latter (the part about wickedness) can be understood in its colloquial usage, as in, this beer is wicked dope!

Because it totally is.

Though we started pouring this beer on draft before its official bottle release tomorrow (that's Friday, mark it down in your calendars!), it still feels pretty special. And of course, christening a beer with the newest Doublenaut label helps to make things feel official, so feel free to judge this book by its beautiful cover.

No Rest For The Wicked is a distant cousin of No Sleep Till Brooklyn, a collaboration beer we did with Jeppe of Evil Twin/Tørst almost a year and a half ago. Because we love the interplay of tart and roasty so much, we decided to brew a similar style, this time with a revamped malt body and more bugs! Yes, that's right, this stout is a veritable mecca for the sorts of yummy bacteria that make you pucker. With strong notes of cocoa, delicious undertones of sour cherry, complex brett-derived aromatics, and a 6 month power nap, this beer is one of those perfect sippers we wish we could keep all to ourselves.

The truth is, there's just no room at the brewery and (lucky for you!) we're not really that mean. So tomorrow after work, and before you head home to become one with the couch, pick up the bottle of beer that will help make that process more seamless.

And when the insomnia or workmares or children wake you in the dead of the night, know at least, that in your fridge is the consolation of a very good beer.

No Rest For The Wicked goes on sale in the Bottle Shop tomorrow (Friday May 9th), $10/BTL, 2000 bottles total.
