Barn Owl No.8

Barrel Aged Sour Ale w/ Red & Black Currants
7.2% 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. 8 is a blended sour ale aged in second use tequila barrels for 1 to 3 years. Before packaging, the blend spent time on a mix of red and black currants. The spirited carbonation and juicy currant character of this delightful libation are tempered by gentle acidity and a whisper of agave.
