5.0% Oak Aged Farmhouse Sour Amber Lagerbier


This beer was originally brewed as a simple amber lager.  Fermented & lagered for three months in stainless with German lager yeast. It was almost time for packaging when we had just received a fresh batch of wine barrels at the brewery, we could not resist. The entire little batch was transferred into a single Cabernet Sauvignon oak barrel along with a fresh new mixed culture of Brettanomyces & souring bacteria. It then aged for a full year while undergoing secondary fermentation in the barrel. After aging, we dry-hopped with East Kent Golding & Saaz hops prior to bottle conditioning.


We’re extremely pleased with the results and the decision to age this beer further. The secondary fermentation and oak aging turned this tasty refined lager into an intricately layered hybrid farmhouse sour/lager. The light malty sweetness is retained, with a tart and dry finish. Floral aromatics, with notes of caramel and orange rind, with a balanced spiciness from the dry-hopping. Red wine and oak are prevalent throughout, adding to the complexity. Clean, crisp, effervescent, and overall, just a great drinking beer.
