Barrel-aged Beer for MAY

It's that time of the month again when we release another of our barrel-aged beers.

This month we've selected our Sour Trippel. This beer was brewed by Anacortes Brewing using a our Belgian yeast strain. When the beer was done fermenting, they brought some kegs back to us and we aged them in the Brettanomyces barrels housed in our Burien brewery. A couple of months later, the beer had matured to a point where we liked the taste, and now it's ready to serve.

The beer is definitely sour, but with a faint layer of sweetness left over from the sugar remaining in the base beer. Be prepared for a wee bit of pucker, but that's the yeast talking, so listen up! Enjoy.

One small keg will be tapped at each of our pubs, so hurry in for your taste of this unique concoction.
