Victory Sour Monkey (AKA sour golden monkey) gets a new format

Victory Sour Monkey

Victory Sour Monkey a twist on the brewery’s year round favorite, Golden Monkey is now available in 12 ounce bottles for the first time. The Belgian-style tripel has spent some time undergoing multiple fermentations via three different yeasts.

The first yeast in the trio is Westmalle yeast (made famous by the Belgian Trappist brewery), used in the Golden Monkey base beer. The sour and wild characteristics come from a blend of Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus bacteria.

A result of the visionary enthusiasm of Victory Brewing Company’s brewers, Sour Monkey playfully tantalizes taste buds into a electrified frenzy by combining juicy Tettnang and Hallertrau whole flower hops with Pilsner malt and coriander seed before bringing in the fun and the funk of unique yeast varieties. With an ABV of 9.5%, Sour Monkey delivers a punch with the pure taste of Victory.

Victory Sour Monkey is once again in 12 ounce bottles in all of the brewery’s 57 state distribution footprint. Estimated retail price of $11.99.
