We’re releasing the next two installments in our Reserve Series this Saturday 3/2!
Reserve Series No. 4 is a mixed-culture sour ale brewed and conditioned in French oak with raspberries. The bright red color and candy-like aroma of raspberries blend with contribution from the barrel and mixed cultures that dwell within. This combination brings forth a fruity, funky, tart, and oaky offering we are excited to share with you.
Reserve Series No. 5 is a foudre fermented sour ale aged 9 months in a Captive Spirits gin barrel with Montmorency cherries. Gin botanicals, deep aromas of American oak, and Montmorency cherries. The first sip brings puckering acidity, smoothed by the melding of juniper berries, grains of paradise, citrus, tart cherries, and oak. This beer is reminiscent of a decadent gin cocktail.
Bottles available at 12 noon on Saturday, March 3 in our taproom. Other bottles from our cellar will be available for on-site consumption, and Agustin will be leading brewery tours at 2pm, 3pm & 4pm.
