Of Liquid Diet Riddles
9-2=7 ... What was Victory involved in that used the number 7? 7 grains, 7 hops, 7 yeasts, 7 fermentations, 7 days and nights? 7 has always been a magic number, but in this case it was none of the above. But, what I do recall after fishing through old issues of Ale Street News and Mid Atlantic Brewing News follows below. 7 Threads Symposium Ale was a blended porter made with Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale, Flying Fish Porter, Independence Brewpub Oatmeal Stout, Iron Hill Pig Iron Porter, Nodding Head Grog, Stoudt's Fat Dog Stout, Victory Storm King Stout & Yards India Pale Ale. At 6.8% ABV & 50 IBUs, it was blended and bottled at Stoudt's Brewery to commemorate the Brewers Association's Craft Brewers Conference in Philadelphia April 13-16, 2005. Is 7-Threads the answer to Jack's question? We'll see, come this Saturday at The Drafting Room.
