After 18 months of brewing, aging and countless tastings, the time has come to begin transitioning away from The Propagation Series with the release of Fortune Favors the Funk, a ‘Lambic inspired’ ale.
Fortune Favors the Funk is a unique collaboration with our talented friends from Sierra Nevada. Together, we spent an afternoon tasting and blending to create a beer that showcases our love of wild flavors and balanced acidity. The final beer was created using Beachwood Blendery’s ‘Lambic inspired’ barrels and an experimental hop Sierra Nevada provided, known as ex-598.
Fortune Favors the Funk was brewed with traditional lambic ingredients; pilsner malt, unmalted wheat and aged hops boiled for three hours. The base beer was fermented in neutral oak barrels and aged for almost a year. After blending, the beer was dry hopped with ex-598 hops, bottled with wine yeast, and allowed to condition for over two months. Fortune Favors the Funk has a classic rustic profile balanced with solid acidity, full body, and clean finish.
