River Horse Cherry Berliner Weisse Returns

From River Horse:

Did you know...

1 - Our Head Brewer, Chris, decided he wanted to make this beer after visiting Belgium and overly enjoying the Kriek lambics. Kriek lambic is a style of Belgian beer, made by fermenting lambic with sour Morello cherries.

2 - 550 lbs of cherries are added per tank! That means,  5% of the total volume of the beer is cherry! 

3 - This style barely has any hops added because the lacto bacteria and hops don't agree.

4 - A three-stage fermentation process is used.
First with lacto bacteria
Second with our house ale strain
Third with the cherries

5 - Our bearded, burly brewers LOVE their cherry beer! Of all the beers we brew at River Horse, this is the house favorite!
