Carolina Bauernhaus 18 Mile Red Cherry

Carolina Bauernhaus 18 Mile Red Cherry bottles arrive in the brewery’s taproom on October 14th.

The base beer for Carolina Bauernhaus 18 Mile Red Cherry is a Belgian-style red ale, brewed with North Carolina grown Wrens Abruzzi rye malt, and fermented in regional wine barrels.

Brewery co-founder David Thornton also founded SouthYeast Labs, born out of a Science of Beer course at Clemson University. The acidity of this new release is thanks SouthYeast isolated Lactobacillus, found in locally grown opuntia fruit. Additionally, the mix of wild yeast comes from Clemson University’s Musser Experimental Fruit Research Farm.

The base beer was aged for four months in barrels before being introduced to tart cherries and aged for another three months.

The resulting rustic refined ale has a bright acidity and is filled with tart cherry and dark fruit notes rounded out by vinous barrel character.
