Kind of Blue by Miles Davis is regarded as the best Jazz album of all time, and we pay homage to that album with this beer. During the recording process, with some of jazz's all-time greats, most of them had no idea what they were going into the studio to record. Davis simply briefed them on the concept and structure of 'modality', which was a framework to keep the musicians moving together, and facilitated exploration and collaboration! At Batch, we sometimes take a similar approach, and that's what this beer represents. An idea in theory, brought to life in the brewery (our studio), pretty much on the spot because we wanted to push ourselves out of our comfort zone and do something a bit different. Of course, we were confident in the outcome because we have a great team of brewers (just like Miles' musicians) to help us execute a fantastic version of a non-conventional style of beer! This is Our Kind of Blue. A Blueberry Wheat Ale. Cheers to Miles!
