Gigantic Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
Upstaging famous Oregonian Wild Ale specialists like Cascade, Ale Apothecary, and Logsdon at the Best of Craft Beer Awards, it was Gigantic Brewing’s oak-aged Fantastic Voyage Wild Ale that brought home the Silver Medal for Brett Beer.
You don’t surpass legends like that overnight -- this beer took a two-year journey to get there.
Starting with a peppery mixed culture Saison and Brett-infused Saison base, its lemongrass floral hop notes gain a Chardonnay character from 18 months of oak aging. An additional six months of bottle conditioning gives the slow-moving Brett yeast time to build up a brisk fizz and delicate peachy notes. Creamy, dry and hazy, Fantastic Voyage offers up one plot twist after another as you sip.
Journeys take time, and this one demands you slow down to savor its depth. Be sure to pencil in an extra hour for Fantastic when you find the right occasion for this intricately crafted one-time release.
*To heighten the mental effects of this brew, Gigantic recommends drinking it while appreciating the Doom Rock band Orchid or the surreal artwork of Mike Davis.
