Orpheus Barrel Aged Sykophantes will be available in bottles on September 3rd. This will be the Atlanta, Georgia’s 3rd bottle release.
Orpheus Barrel Aged Sykophantes is the brewery’s fig sour, aged in cognac barrels. Regular Orpheus Sykophantes has previously been released.
In ancient Greece, “showing the fig” was a vulgar hand gesture, and Sykophantes means “one who shows the fig”. Earthy and full of dark fruit flavor from hundreds of pounds of figs and dark candy syrup, but with a sourness that cuts the gentle sweetness, Sykophantes is our fall beer.
Orpheus Barrel Aged Sykophantes will be available in 22 ounce bottles on September 3rd, along with Orpheus The 12th Labor (bourbon barrel aged imperial stout). The brewery’s first bottle also released this month, Wandering Blues.
