We're brewing a small-batch beer on our brewpub 4-bbl system with our pals from Funky Buddha in Oakland Park, Florida. Like us, they started super small as a nano brewery; they started out brewing 45-gallon batches, and Dogfish started back in 1995 with 15-gallon batches.
We are both also willing to give the finger to the Reinheitsgebot. Not the middle finger ... more like the Mork finger, as in 'Nano-nano.' Hence the name of the beer. We're using Mork's East Coast gang sign to show the connected geography of the beer.
Nano-Nano is a 9 percent ABV Porter-Porter (a double porter) brewed with Tanzanian chocolate, oak-fired habanero, and salt-salt (one salt locally harvested from south Florida beaches and one from Rehoboth Beach here in Delaware).
Nano-nano will be ready to pour at our pub in about a month and at both of our breweries' booths at the Extreme Beer Fest in Boston in March. The brew team will be hanging upstairs at the brewpub today for a Brewer's Happy Hour after the brew.
