Event Details


With each step of the brewing process our goal was to saturate Opulence with rich dark fruit flavors. We began with a base of toasted and caramelized European malts to deliver fig and plum. Fermentation with a red wine strain enhanced the jamminess of the early dose of dried sour cherries. Aging in Bourbon and Pinot Noir barrels creates oaky depth. A final infusion of fresh local sour cherries from Baugher’s Orchard (Westminster, MD) instills a bright cherry pie aroma.

In the glass, vanilla and coconut aromatics derived from the charred American oak are a unique accompaniment to the cherry and almond from the fruit. Firm acidity and fresh leather aromatics from the prolonged mixed-fermentation provide balance.
