Where to Drink Ferran Adrià’s New Beer

By

Spanish brewer Estrella Damm wont be launching its new beer, Inedit, until sometime in the fall, but in the meantime its being plugged here by no less than Ferran Adri, who, along with his sommeliers, helped the company come up with whats described as a unique coupage of barley malt and wheat with hop, coriander, orange peel, liquorice, yeast and water. After bottling and capping, a secondary fermentation in the bottle occurs, leading to a more complex product. With the help of Dan Barber, Adri will unveil the beer to members of the press next week at Blue Hill at Stone Barns. Reps are being secretive about the product till then, but you can actually score a 25-ounce bottle (for $30) at Puck Fair. A bartender there helpfully describes Inedit as a blond wheat similar to Hoegaarden but a lot better in quality. Its a lot cleaner, more refined, and designed by a famous chef. Famous indeed.
