Warp & Weft

Sour Brett Ale Aged in Tequila Barrels
7.5% ALC./VOL.

Warp refers to the threads that run north-south in fabric, while Weft refers to the threads that run east-west. They are woven together to create cloth, something altogether greater than the sum of its parts.

Last year's version was a berliner weisse aged for 3 months in tequila barrels. This year's version is a mixed fermentation that utilized lactic acid bacteria and sacchromyces, in addition to several strains of brettanomyces, and was then aged for 12 months in tequila barrels.

What it smells and tastes like: Sour, citrusy, and taking on all the complex flavours of tequila without the harsh alcohol heat, this intense beer is strangely like a margarita. Subtle flavours of aloe, grapefruit, lime juice, agave, and salt vie for a background role.
