COPPER SKY - Sour Biere de Garde - 500ml
A true farmhouse "beer to be stored" in the classic French tradition. This cask-aged Bier de Garde is finished in a wine cask that held Grenache for nine years at Carlson Creek Vineyards in Wilcox, AZ prior to our re-purposing it. The Farmhouse yeast contains regular beer yeast as well as a wild strain, Brettanomyces, which develops the earthy, sour finish over the months of aging. Brilliantly clear and coppery in color with just a touch of funk from the wild yeast. Body is medium-full with a pleasing mouth feel. Satisfying with roast meats, charcuterie and strong cheeses around a wooden table. Get Rustic!
