Orpheus Wandering Blues, a blueberry sour ale was the Atlanta based brewery’s first bottle release. Bottles are available again starting today.
Orpheus Wandering Blues uses Mosaic hops, fermented with saison yeast, and soured with the brewery’s house Lactobacillus. The blueberries were juiced by Arden’s Garden.
After the fateful serpent bite which killed his wife, Eurydice, Orpheus spent years wandering the earth in mourning. His sad songs eventually moved a stone and opened the entrance to the underworld, where he journeyed down to Hades in search of her. In his wandering, visions of Eurydice danced around in his head, both his curse and his solace.
Orpheus Wandering Blues is back on tap as of July 28th. 22 ounce bottles will be available at both the brewery, and limited distribution starting August 31st, 2016.
