Saint Petersburg Brett is Lafayette Brett's cousin from Russia. As the oldest of the Brett clan, Saint Petersburg Brett survived the Gulag and made a fortune as the owner of a Russian nickel mine. These days, his enthusiasm for beer can be easily mistaken for rage if all you do is look at his facial expressions. That's attributable to his family's characteristic asymmetric features and sharp teeth. It turns out, he's a big, cuddly, happy, feral mutant with great enthusiasm for beer.


Saint Petersburg Brett features a Russian imperial stout grain bill fermented with brettanomyces bruxellensis. It is hopped in the kettle and dry hopped with Pacific Jade. It's a big, roasty, fruity beer that we release mid winter. Or late winter. Or spring. In mother russia, beer tells you when it's ready! The beer features incredible Brett funk, along with mild acidity.
