Almanac Pumpkin Pie de Brettaville to join Farm to Barrel Series

Almanac Pumpkin Pie de Brettaville

Almanac Pumpkin Pie de Brettaville looks to join the brewery’s ongoing Farm to Barrel Series in the coming months.

The California based brewery already has a few different renditions of “Brettaville” in their lineup, including a Tangerine de Brettaville, and a Peach de Brettaville. Almanac Pumpkin Pie de Brettaville features roasted heirloom pumpkins and fall spices, aged in oak barrels.

We start by brewing a bright and aromatic farmhouse ale with a blend of twelve “brett” yeast strains. After a vigorous primary fermentation, the beer is racked into wine barrels to mature. In cask, the beer takes on the complex flavors of the oak, and the brettanomyces yeast creates an exotic melange of earthy funk and tropical fruit flavors.

Almanac Pumpkin Pie de Brettaville will be a 375 milliliter bottle offering.

Style: American Wild Ale (w/ Pumpkin. Oak Barrel Aged.)
Availability: 375ml Bottles, Draft. Limited.
Release: TBA

Odell Zard-Alu Sour Apricot releases May 27th

Odell Zard-Alu Sour Apricot

Odell Zard-Alu Sour Apricot is on deck by the Colorado based brewery.

Love fruited sours? Odell Zard-Alu Sour Apricot is a fruit focused sour, featuring a blend of Brettanomyces yeast, and Lactobacillus.

Apricots are thought to be native of the Persian territory, where they were commonly referred to as Zard-Alu. These precious stone fruits were so highly revered that they were often used a commodity in the markets. The stones were not to be wasted. Much like this brew. While peach and pear-like flavors mingle in the background, as Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus create the tie that binds all the components. The end result is a complex ale that is playfully sour, light, and refreshing.

Odell Zard-Alu Sour Apricot will be a 750 milliliter offering, available in the tap room starting May 27th/

Style: American Wild/Sour Ale (w/ Apricots)
Availability: 750ml Bottles
Release: 5/27/16

Carolina Bauernhaus June Princess

Carolina Bauernhaus June Princess will officially be the Anderson, South Carolina based brewery’s first bottle release.

The wild and sour based brewery headed up by Keston Helfrich and David Thorton opened in December of 2015. Their lineup is almost 100% sold in their downtown taproom.

Carolina Bauernhaus June Princess goes head to head in our book for the best sour in their young repetoire (the other being 18 Mile.)

Our native fermented sour rye ale brewed with North Carolina grown pilsner and wheat malts. This hazy gold beer was fermented in regional Tempranillo barrels and aged on local apricots and locally harvested June Princess nectarines from Clemson’s fruit research farm. The beer is fermented with a blend of SouthYeast Labs N1 strong ale yeast and native lactobacillus along with a few Brettanomyces strains. This fruit forward beer is balanced by a bright acidity and rounded out by an oaky barrel character.

Carolina Bauernhaus June Princess will be a 750 milliliter bottle offering. The brewery has not yet announced a release date.

Style: America WIld/Sour Ale (w/ Nectarines, Apricots. Wine Barrel Aged.)
Availability: 750ml Bottles

Wicked Weed Coolcumber to make a bottle appearance

Wicked Weed Coolcumber

Wicked Weed Coolcumber, already available on draft, will soon be a bottled offering.

The beer is exactly as it sounds, a golden ale brewed with cucumber. Take our word for it – it really does smell and taste like cucumber. (Plus basil and juniper berries of course.)  Face it, the South is hot. This beer is like air conditioning in a glass.

Summer in Carolina is a time when days grow long, life slows down, and friends draw near. Gardens burst with brisk basil and fresh cucumbers, fireflies illuminate the night sky, and warm days leave us lounging late, our glasses brimming with golden nectar. Summer in the South is best served cool.

Wicked Weed Coolcumber will be a 12 ounce bottle offering.

Style: Golden Ale (w/ Cucumber, Basil, Juniper Berries.)
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
Release: TBA
