Riserva 2014 Debut
Riserva 2014 will debut Thursday, March 27th at noon! The Visitors Center will only have a very limited amount since there is so much demand for it through our wholesalers. So if you plan to pick some up at the brewery, don’t wait!
Even though the last batch we produced was dated 2012, this offering is Riserva 2014 since the aging process has pulled the release later and later each year. Don’t worry – you didn’t miss a batch, we just got caught up to the right name for the right year!
Riserva 2014, like all Riserva releases in the past, will be a unique brew. Due to the extended barrel aging and the wild nature of the microflora used to sour this beer, each year’s release can be quite different.
Look for it in the market in late March or early April. If you’re local, stop by the Visitors Center for a free sample from March 27th through March 29th only!
Upcoming Beer Releases
Forget the groundhog and his predictions – we all know Weyerbacher’s 4.6% ABV White Sun Wit signals the actual arrival of spring! White Sun Wit has begun shipping to wholesalers and will become available on April 3rd at the Visitors Center! Learn more about White Sun Wit!
Rhumpshaka will be released on Friday, April 18th at noon exclusively at the Visitors Center! Rhum is the old world/pirate way of spelling rum. Rhumpshaka started life as an almost nondescript 11% ABV beer using 80% Pilsner malt and 20% oats to allow the character of the rum barrels to be the focus. Rhumpshaka spent over 9 months in 12 old rum barrels, some of which were commissioned back in 1982! The resulting beer is unfiltered and has a profound boozy character. Huge coconut and passionfruit-like aromas fill your nose. The heat from the rum is immediately apparent and blends well with the vanilla and coconut flavors, which linger on your palate. It’s a sweeter finish with tannic notes commensurate with extended barrel aging. Finished in a 750 ml bottle with cork and cage, we’ll only have about 90 cases! Be sure to grab some for your cellar once released on Friday, April 18th!
Remember: Rhumpshaka will NOT BE DISTRIBUTED! This is a special one-off release available exclusively at the Visitors Center!
