Tomorrow at noon we’re releasing our next barrel aged sour beer.
Blackberry Collins is a gin barrel aged sour loaded with blackberry and lemon.
Brewed with Belgian pilsner malt, spelt, oats, wheat, and special aromatic malt, soured with lacto plantarum, and fermented in freshly emptied gin barrels with a blend of sacch and brett cultures. After about 6 months in oak, the beer was transferred onto 128kg of blackberry purée and and a couple cases of fresh lemon zest and juice. After about 3 months on fruit, we bottle conditioned with champagne yeast and let it hang out for a further 2.5 months.
The result is super jammy, bright, dry as a bone with a firm minerality and some complex juniper/gin aromatics and lightly tannic.
By the bottle only at the tasting room. We’re loving this beer, we hope you do too.
