The Rare Barrel West of the Mississippi debuts at the brewery on August 22nd.
This new oak-aged golden sour is a collaboration with St. Louis-based Perennial Artisan Ales. The team selected a blend of unique barrels, ranging from open-fermented saisons, to various dry-hopped Brettanomyces beers.
The blended base was then dosed with black lime (dried lime, that has lost most of it’s water content).
This yielded an incredibly unique brew with an almost earthy depth of flavor that complements the notes of passion fruit, papaya, and limeade.
The Rare Barrel West of the Mississippi will be available in the brewery’s tasting room in 750-milliliter bottles on August 22nd.
