Join us this Wednesday, the 17th, as we tap 2 special kegs from a newcomer to Madison, Almanac Beer Company, which is one of my favorite sour breweries in the country. If you haven’t had them yet, and are a sour fan, you are in for a real treat. If you have had them, no more need said!
The two kegs are:
Farmer’s Reserve Blueberry – The brewers selected the very best hand-picked blueberries grown in the hills of Butte County, California, and added them to a sour golden ale aged in wine barrels. Good as it sounds – 96 on RateBeer
Saison de Brettaville – We began with our classic Saison Dolores and added twelve different strains of brettanomyces, capturing a snapshot of each strain’s best flavors and aromas, then aged this new brew in white wine barrels. Finally it was finished off with a delicate dry hopping of Hallertau Blanc, Mandarina, and Mosaic! The result is a farmhouse ale that is more funky than sour, with nuance that only brett can create. 99 on RateBeer
Come enjoy them both in a small pour or full pour as we welcome this excellent San Francisco brewery to Madison.
