About This Item

Fruited American Sour & Wild Ale

Fun fact: there are over 1,000 different types of cherries in existence. Our current blend focuses on the Montmorency Cherry. The pressure we placed upon ourselves with using cherries stems from our deeply held belief that cherries have a special traditional significance in the history of fruited beers. We view cherries as entirely separate from the pack when it comes to fruit. Whether long-aged, traditional method Kriek Lambics, or the truly special seasonal releases from the time-tested sour breweries of Oregon, cherries add another layer of magic to even the best sour beers. Utilizing our pale sour base beer as a canvas, we opted for a rather restrained (for us) amount of cherries in order to highlight the deep, jammy pie filling texture and flavour depth of the cherries, but thinning and brightening these flavours with the lactic acid forward nature of the underlying base blend. Although the wait was long, we are excited to bring you our take on what we consider to be a very special style.
