Wild Heaven Releasing Emmylou 10/5

10 October 2016

imageFrom Wild Heaven:

18 months ago our Brewmaster, Eric, and his production team began aging a blend of golden ale in Bordeaux barrels. Fermented in steel tanks, what followed in the wood was a mixed fermentation including brettanomyces and lactobacillus. The result is radiant.

Five golden fruits - kumquats, D’Anjou pears, canteloupe, gooseberry and Asian persimmon were added to dozens of barrels - only one fruit per barrel. The beer ranges from 12 to 18 months of barrel aging and the maturity shows. A final careful blending process created a beautiful tart beer with the oak shining through.

Thus begins a new series for Wild Heaven Beer. We’re excited to introduce Emmylou first. Another from the series will appear every few months in the coming year and hopefully beyond. We’ve already got four more in the barrels and each one will be unique. It goes without saying that each of these barrel-aged fruited sours will be a very limited release with only a small amount making it to retail shelves.

We're opening early on 10/15 for a special Emmylou Tour. In town for Decatur Beer Fest? Come hang out with us first. $50 entrance includes

36oz of tastings at the brewery including Emmylou
Special Emmylou cheese pairings
Four (4) 500ml souvenir bottles of Emmylou
