Our next bottle release will be Elliptical Orbit 2020 on Friday November 27th! It's our second Black Friday releasing a dark sour aged in Maryland
Dark Sour Ale Aged in Red Wine Barrels with Figs Added
In 2008 Mike and his friend Alex Howe began a tradition of homebrewing Dark Funky Saisons each fall. The recipe and results evolving and revolving over a decade. Elliptical Orbit 2020 is our scaled-up spin on the second iteration, with bready dark malts, rye, and Black Mission figs. We aged it in Maryland Chambourcin red wine barrels for 10 months.
The result is layered with earthy rye, bright acidity, rich dark fruit, and leathery Brett. The second entry in a renewed tradition.
