HOUSTON - Saint Arnold announced it had to dump 11,000 gallons of its first batch of the new Santo beer, delaying its release from the initially scheduled date of September 1st.
According to a press release: "After filtering a batch this week and getting it ready for packaging we tasted it. It was good, but it was missing that spark that separates a good beer from a great beer." Rather than proceed with bottling and distribution, owner and founder Brock Wagner decided to dispose of the entire initial batch and start again with a few recipe modifications.
No official rescheduled release date has been announced but a first batch should be available by October.
