Ska releases DIFF tonight

Tonight (Fri., Jan. 28) at 5 p.m., Ska Brewing Co. will release its annual DIFF, a beer timed to coincide with the Durango Independent Film Festival. (Ska is the festival's "official beer sponsor.")

DIFF is a Belgian-style witbier. I like it quite a bit. Unfortunately, last year it had an overpowering lemongrass taste. Hopefully, Ska has dialed that flavor back a bit to let the delicious yeast and Pilsen and wheat malts come out.

The local band Telekave will play.

Here's what Ska says:

Durango Film goers will once again savor the DIFF as Ska Brewing releases the 6th annual DIFF Belgian Wit Beer in support of the 2011 Durango Independent Film Festival. Ska, a long-time supporter of independent film in Durango, will host a release party in the tasting room from 5:00-7:00pm on Friday, January 28. Along with releasing the beer you can enjoy live music from local band Telekave. Hope to see you there!

The DIFF is an unfiltered Belgian Wit Beer with a touch of the Orient for good measure. Most of the flavor comes from an authentic Belgian yeast strain, but there is also added Pilsen malts and raw wheat and oats that help to give it a cloudy, hazy effect. It is also spiced with orange peel, coriander seed and oriental lemongrass. DIFF is a limited, single-batch release and will be available only in Durango area liquor stores and the Ska Brewing tasting room.

  1. An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment. There's no doubt that that you should write more on this subject, it might not be a taboo matter but typically folks don't talk
    about these topics. To the next! Cheers!!
