Sour Ale Dry Hopped with Mosaic®
You might expect a brewery founded by two authors best known for writing about hoppy and sour beers to brew more hoppy sour beers… Well, here you go! We blended a tart rye saison aged three months in stainless steel with a white-wine-barrel-aged multi-grain saison. We dry hopped the blend with one of our favorite hops, Mosaic Cryo®! Mosaic imparts a deep blueberry-fruitiness to mingle with the acidity and a vibrancy to brighten the earthy aroma.

Pearlized ($16/500 mL Bottle)
Pale Sour Ale with Asian Pear Juice Added
Asian pear is a subtle fruit, often described more by its crisp texture than a distinct flavor. Perfect to add luster to a sour beer without obscuring culture and barrel. After aging this pale sour in well-used Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir barrels we blended it with 20% Virginia-grown Asian Pear juice. The result is light, bright, with a honey-ish note from the fruit. The balance is more tart than sweet though the pear provides perceived sweetness.
