Birds Fly South Skin & Bone

Birds Fly South Skin & Bone, a collaboration with Tarpon Springs, Florida’s Saint Somewhere Brewing Company.

This beer was originally one of the first offerings by Birds Fly South Ale Project, based in Greenville, South Carolina. between the first release and this month’s returns, the brewery has opened a beautiful, wood heavy tap room in the city’s West End Water Tower District.

Skin & Bone is one of the best releases in the brewery’s budding arsenal. This beer hits on all the notes you chase in wild ales – tart, funk and funk. Each sip finishes with mellow hints of the chardonnay barrels. Looking back over 2016, Skin & Bone was easily one of the best new beers we tried. Definitely don’t miss this second round.

Watermelons. Carolina Bauernhaus Bradford debuts May 20th

Carolina Bauernhaus Bradford

Carolina Bauernhaus Bradford, a watermelon wild ale, debuts on May 20th.

Heirloom Bradford watermelons take the lead in Carolina Bauernhaus Bradford. The melons are touted as one of the sweetest and most flavorful melon. The American wild ale has been fermenting in oak barrels for 10 months in a blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon barrels, before being introduced to the melons.

Our ale was fermented with a blend of native yeast locally collected by SouthYeast Labs and a blend of wild yeasts and bacteria added to the barrel. A massive amount of farm fresh Bradford watermelons were added after aging for a bright, refreshing, and very South Carolina summer-like flavor braced by a tart sour finish.

Carolina Bauernhaus Bradford will be available in 750 milliliter bottles, when the brewery opens on May 20th.

Style: American Wild Ale (w/ Watermelons. Wine Barrel Aged.)
Availability: 750ml Bottles

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.
