Mixed Ferm Brett Beer aged in Foeders
(1) 750mL Bottle, 6.3% ABV
LSV is a complex, mixed-fermentation beer blending one of our oldest (and funkiest) barrel projects with a house sour culture. This project began in August of 2017, when we racked a boozy Golden Strong Ale into Brettanomyces-inoculated Sauvignon Blanc barrels. Two years of conditioning left this beer bone dry, replacing malty sweetness with an appealing funk, distinct oak character, and earthy backbone. To provide additional brightness, we blended this project with a mouth-puckering sour, fermented in an oak foeder with a blend of Brettanomyces, Saccharomyces, Lactobacillus, and Pediococcus bugs. The final blend balances tart flavors of rhubarb and sour apple with savory undertones of hay – a celebration of the fall harvest.
