Barn Owl No.6

Barrel Aged Sour Red Ale w/ Blueberries
5.5% ALC./VOL.

This ongoing barrel blend series is named Barn Owl, as a nod to the wise and exacting animal that keeps watch over the farmhouse. Released sporadically throughout the year, just as soon as we deem the barrels ripe for the picking, these beers will be one-off creations never to be replicated again.

No. 6 is a Sour Red Ale, aged for 2-3 years in oak barrels blended onto blueberries and is a deep ruby purple with lively carbonation reminiscent of delicious Lambrusco. It has an effervescent, rich red wine, fresh berry, and Flemish red nose. Made with 200 grams per liter of blueberries this beer has dry wine tannins rendering it one to savor or crush (responsibly). Yes we will be using blueberries again!
