With a cherry on top: The Bruery White Chocolate with Cherries is on the horizon

The Bruery White Chocolate with Cherries

One of California’s most decadent dessert beers is getting a cherry on top. The Bruery White Chocolate with Cherries is on the horizon.

A bourbon barrel-aged wheatwine serves as a boozy canvas for the waves of chocolate and vanilla introduced into this beer. The end result is wash of chocolate, vanilla oak, and vanilla beans, finishing in with a warming alcoholic heat.

Taking things a step further, the brewery has added a blend of tart and sweet cherries.

If you closed your eyes in our barrel house, you might think our brewers become chocolatiers. They dipped cherries into this limited edition of our bourbon barrel-aged wheatwine-style ale. With white chocolate flavors thanks to fresh vanilla beans, cacao nibs and extensive oak-aging, this treat for the senses has been enhanced with the addition of tart, sweet, juicy cherries.

The Bruery White Chocolate with Cherries will be a 750 milliliter bottle release. Release details are currently not available.

Style: Barleywine (w/ Cherries.  Barrel Aged. Bourbon.)
Availability: 750ml Bottles
Debut: TBA

Carolina Bauernhaus Petite Kriek releases May 6th

Carolina Bauernhaus Petite Kriek

Carolina Bauernhaus Petite Kriek is up next in bottle for the Anderson, South Carolina based brewery.

The brewery’s base sour golden ale has been aged in Petite Syrah barrels before head brewer Keston Helfrich blended in a hefty chunk of art Montmorency cherries. By now the flavor of this future release should be taking shape.

We native fermented and aged our golden sour ale in Petite Syrah barrels before blending in a massive amount of tart Montmorency cherries to create a delightfully refreshing petite sour ale with a light body, tart acidity, bright pie cherry flavor , and a subtle barrel funk. This unique regional ale draws its acidity from a strain of lactobacillus isolated by SouthYeast labs from opuntia fruit in La France, South Carolina and a blend of locally captured native yeasts.

Carolina Bauernhaus Petite Kriek will be available in 750ml bottles at the brewery starting May 6th.

Style: American Wild Ale (w/ Cherries. Wine Aged.)
Availability: 750ml Bottles, Draft.
Debut: 4/6/17

4.5 ABV
