After more than 2 years of patiently waiting, we are finally ready for the first official bottle release from our barrel-aged sour pogram on Saturday, April 8th, Peach Climacteric! Here's the official description for Peach Climacteric:
Peach Climacteric is the first official release from our barrel-aged sour program and represents the culmination of nearly 2 years of work, which began when we opened our doors back in 2014. We started with a blend of various batches of pale golden sours, fermented with multiple strains of Brettanomyces and bacteria and aged in oak barrels for anywhere from 4-16 months. The climacteric event marks the peak of edible ripeness for fruit and Peach Climacteric certainly lives up to that description after aging the blend with over 1,600 pounds of fresh peaches from Palisade, CO (nearly 4 pounds of peaches per gallon).
We know many of you have been just as anxious for its release as we are and we can't wait to share it with you. Peach Climacteric will be our first 750 mL bottle release, and is also the first beer we have bottle conditioned, thanks to a TON of help from our friends at Wiley Roots Brewing Company, who not only let us borrow their bottle filler, but also helped us figure out the entire process.
Peach Climacteric will only be available in 750 mL bottles for $28 each, with a strict limit of 2 bottles per person. We will have enough bottles for at least 500 full allocations.
