Urban Artifact Chief of Brewing Operations Bret Kollman Baker Talks Fire Iron

We spoke with Urban Artifact Chief of Brewing Operations Bret Kollman Baker about Fire Iron.

BC: What’s your favorite aspect of this beer (flavor, aroma, etc.)?
The banana. It is such a wonderful complexity driver. Its rounds out and enhances everything about the beer from the aroma and flavor to filling out and smoothing the texture.

BC: Where does this beer’s name come from?
Fire Iron is old west slang for a trusty hand gun. We thought this was a nice juxtaposition to the tropical fruit nature of the beer.

BC: Can you describe this beer in 10 words or less?
Tropical fruit smoothie.

BC: What's a good food pairing for this beer?
How about pairing it with another alcohol? Fire Iron goes beautifully with white rum. It is truly fantastic to add a splash of white rum to the glass. It tastes like a tropical daiquiri!
