“This is the part of me that geeks out about our space program,” de Frias said. “Terminal Descent occurs in the portion of the Entry, Descent and Landing phase of a mission in which final preparation for landing occurs.”
Mark Osbourne owner of Adroit and Omar wanted to create the perfect beer pairing with the Fratello Bianco.
“Fratello Bianco is all about earthiness, cocoa, coffee notes and liquor,” de Frias said.
“We felt like Bianco would be fantastic for this pairing as we brewed Terminal Descent with chocolate malt for sweetness and chocolate rye for a spicy bite without the normal astringency or bitterness associated with such a deep roast.” Osbourne said.
Terminal Descent will be available May 1st in 19 Total Wine Stores in Virginia, 2 Total Wine Stores in Maryland, Adroit’s tasting room, and Fratello Cigar Events in Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia.
