Creature Comforts River Ridge Red debuts June 15th.
Combine Independence, Virginia’s River Ridge Organics raspberries, and Athens’s, Georgia based Creature Comfort’s oak barrels and talent, and you have this new wild ale.
Creature chose some of their best barrels to blend onto the fresh raspberries, punching down the fruit into the barrels for a full two weeks. After that, the raspberries soaked in the ale for another six months in oak, until the brewery achieved a balanced acid profile.
Creature Comforts River Ridge Red will be available in 500-milliliter bottles at the brewery on June 15th, $17.99 each. Limited 6 per person/mule.
