Fort Atkinson, WI -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/15/2017 -- Bent Kettle is living up to their catch phrase telling people to "Get Bent" by bending the rules when it comes to new unconventional craft brews by combining unique flavors together.
Craft beer lovers and Bent Kettle Taproom patrons love how Bent Kettle bends the rules. According to the Bent Kettle philosophy of craft brewing, good craft beer should test and excite the palette. However, GREAT craft beer should go beyond the confines of that which is considered normal. It should be Irreverent, Innovative and Un-apologetic in the way it pushes the boundaries of creativity, taste and style.
Expert craft beer reviewers Beer Baron and Chris Drosner agree with Bent Kettle fans:
K'PAUI: "Candy bar in a glass! The coconut billows out of the glass, sweet and tropical and perfectly pairing with the chocolatey, slightly roasty malt for an effect that brought me back to childhood slices of German chocolate cake. From that aroma you'd expect it to be sticky-sweet, and all the sugars are not fermented away. But thanks to deft hopping and careful malt selection K'Paui is able to deliver all that coconut and chocolate character with enough balance — just the right amount of sizzling bitterness on the finish — to invite further sips. As the soft, smooth and enveloping beer warms, the malty chocolate emerges in the aroma and flavor, overtaking the still-there coconut as the foremost flavor. It's the kind of beer that figures to do well in small sips at a festival, but because you get all that candy-bar flavor without the sweetness, it's easy to go through a whole tallboy or two."
Bent Kettle Beer Baron Review 9/13/16
"The brewery's three mainstays, an amber ale, an India pale ale and an imperial IPA, are solid beers, made with what Cook calls a nonconformist approach. Go Fasters amber uses crystal rye malt and English hops, while Thwack IPA includes a touch of smoked malt. My favorite of the bunch has been Insolence, a warming, satisfying IPA with an interesting hop bill."
