New Belgium and Yazoo Brewing have their contribution to Memphis Craft Beer Week: a collaborative sour they’re calling Rufus. After chatting about what they hoped to create, New Belgium sent Oscar, the dark sour base use to build La Folie blends, to Yazoo to be combined with their portion with the end result becoming Rufus – “dry, wild, tart, dark fruit forward with a solid sour backbone and slight caramel malt finish.” Expect to see this beer on draft in Memphis the week of May 5th for Memphis Craft Beer Week with it showing its face in Nashville shortly after.
Style: American Wild Ale/Sour Ale
Availability: Draft only
Arrival: May 2013
