Birmingham, Alabama’s Good People Brewing has been quietly building a sour and wild program dubbed “The Funk Farm.” The first release in the series is coming in September.
If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a thousand times, sour beer is on the rise in the United States. A trend that Good People Brewing has obviously noticed.
“We’ve been interested in sour beers and developing new beers for a couple years now. The Funk Farm series showcases the creativity and innovation of our brewers. Through experimentation, we want to explore the art of aged, mixed-fermentation sour beers,” – Jason Malone, Co-Founder and Brewmaster
The first release is a sour blonde ale aged in French oak red wine barrels for 8 months with raspberries and blackberries. This release, and future releases, will be available in the 750 milliliter bottle format.
The first Funk Farm release is slated for Saturday, September 24, 2016 at the brewery in Birmingham, Alabama.
