Oh My God! Double rainbow YouTube video inspires mind-blowing beer
The initial label concept for Double Rainbow Saison
"Oh My God! Oh My God!"
What's more amazing than a double rainbow?
How about a double rainbow beer. "What does it mean??!!"
Trinity Brewing in Colorado Springs has decided to brew Double Rainbow Saison, a Belgian-style beer based on the double rainbow YouTube video that went viral last week after Jimmy Kimmel tweeted it:
my friend Todd has declared this "funniest video in the world" - he might very well be right http://bit.ly/75ieRc
And Trinity owner Jason Yester has invited video maker Paul Vasquez -- now an Internet celebrity -- out from California for the beer's tapping on September 15.
The beer, a collaboration with the very small Black Fox Brewing Company (which only makes saisons), also in Colorado Springs - will be inspired by the colors of the double rainbow, says Trinity president Jason Yester.
Yellow: turmeric and honey;
Orange: pumpkin and tangerine zest
Green: green peppercorns and parsley
Red: saffron and rose hips
Purple: purple barley and raisened Shiraz or Syrah varietal grapes
Blue: blue corn and agave nectar
In fact, Trinity and Black Fox plan to brew a collaborative Saison every year.
"It'll be cool, if you save the bottles each year, after ten years, you will literally be able to see a historical documentation of progressive culture... I thought that was pretty cool," Yester says.
"Whoa!" It will make you cry, and its rays will knock you over.
