Dry-Hopped Brett Saison, Barrel Aged American Wild Beer (Release #001)
Barrel program release: 001
Total available bottles: ~275
Time in oak: 7 months
We're really stoked to release our first barrel aged wild beer on our opening day! Although the brewer has some control over what happens when a beer gets put in oak, a lot of it is up to the mixed cultures we add and those already present in the barrel that dictate the personality of the beer. It's kind of crazy to brew a beer, and wait a bunch of months and see how it develops, but that's part of the fun. #YOLO
We couldn't have done this without the help of our friends at @redbisonbeer who let us brew and store our barrels at their facility 8+ months ago. Special thanks to them!
This beer isn’t sour because Brett doesn't create a lot of acidity, rather they provide a rustic like funkiness. Delicately dry hopped with Bravo to create fruit aroma and a hint of perceived Bitterness. No need to cellar this beer, its ready to drink in its current form.
