We consider ourselves lucky to have been able to secure enough of Cambridge’s Sgt. Pepper for our Rare Beer Club members this month. This beer sees very limited U.S. distribution on the whole, with only 160 cases sold throughout the U.S. in 2015. 70% of those went to New York and Massachusetts. In addition, this is the new and improved recipe of Sgt. Pepper (an enormous tweak in our opinion) as well as the very first batch that’s been bottle conditioned.
This was brewed with four different varieties of whole peppercorns added to the kettle: pink, white, black and green. In addition to a charismatic Belgian yeast strain, Sgt. Pepper includes Pilsner, CaraVienne and Rye malts, as well as healthy hop additions of Magnum and Spalter.
