“Born in the darkness that followed Rapture…” Sour Black is now available and ready to enter your cellar!
Save the Date! Friday, June 29th, 4:30pm to 7:30pm at the Brewery. Come out, meet the brewers and sample this and a few other amazing beers!
Sour Black, ~5% ABV, is a Black Ale aged in Wine Barrels. These barrels are the same used Pinot Noir barrels which produced Rapture. Brettanomyces lambicus was added to the barrels adding a nice acidity. It’s fruity and tart with just enough roasted character; a truly delightful dark ale.
Sour Black Ale is packaged in a 750ml bottle finished with a cork and cage. This beer is available exclusively at the brewery and will not be distributed in any way.
Customers are no longer required by law to purchase beer in case quantities! We do not expect to sell out right away but we are not holding any back for future dates. When this beer is gone, it’s gone forever! Hopefully Sour Black will still be available on Saturday and the following Friday and Saturday as well. We have around 350 cases available. Some math: est: 4,200 bottles at avg. 6 bottles a person = 700 people.
Sour Black is $17 per bottle / $204 for a case of 12 (+ tax). Because we want to spread the love as much as possible, we have placed a 2 case limit for Sour Black per customer. While we do offer a discount to customers purchasing 24 or more bottles of any size or style, Sour Black will contribute toward the total bottles in your order however it is not eligible for any discount.
We will also be sampling 750ml Merry Monks, Our Anniversary beers SEVENTEEN and GABF Gold Medal-Winning SIXTEEN as well as Last Chance IPA at this event! 6/27/12 Last Minute Addition! We will also be sampling “Whiskey Barrel Aged!”
Identical in format to the Riserva 2011 and Last Chance IPA release events, the entire brewery will once again serve as a giant Visitors Center with lots of room for people to spread out. We even have a separate newly-renovated ladies’ room! Guests will enter via the alleyway at our receiving / loading dock door and sample their way back up to the front of the building (where the Visitors Center is). The regular Visitors Center bar area will be closed for sampling however any beer we have on draft is available for growler fills.
We hope to see you there!
