Stochasticity Project HiFi+LoFi Mixtape is our interpretation of an old British staple. Long ago, before stereophonic sound was even a thing, pub owners had a system for transforming questionable ale into something quite drinkable. They kept “stock ales,” beers left to mature in vats or oak barrels. Once deemed suitably mellowed and refined, these aged ales were blended with their freshly brewed counterparts, which were often overly smoky and harsh. The result: more well-rounded, complex and delicious libations.
For this re-enactment of sorts, we weren’t compelled by such circumstances. We took an already good beer and made it great, blending a stock ale aged three months in oak foudres with a fresh version of the beer. Mixed together, these fresh and vintage “tracks” make beautiful music punctuated by toffee, dark fruit character, toasted malts, and light berry and sherry notes.
