bottleFrom The Bruery:

Happy Valentine's Day! Since we're all about showing you the love, we thought we'd pile it on today. Not only do we have three public bottle releases for you today - Frucht: Boysenberry, White Chocolate (2017) and Tart of Darkness (2017), we're also tacking on a number of significant other things. This includes a box of White Chocolates and a beer to put the cherry on top. Pucker up!

Frucht: Boysenberry™

Welcome to Frucht, our land of fruited Berliner Weisse-style beers. Known for a tart flavor profile and traditionally low ABV, our German-style wheat beer gains even more funky notes and natural earthy-woodiness from fermentation in one of our twin oak foeder vessels - the largest known to be fabricated in this country. Each installment in the series features a new fruit, or Frucht, if we’re Sprechen sie Deutsch. This installment has boysenberries added, which impart a puckering jamminess and gem-like hue.

White Chocolate® (2017)

This bourbon barrel-aged wheatwine-style ale made a fanciful trip to the chocolatier and returned with luscious flavors of white chocolate - hence the name. White Chocolate is a rewarding summons to the senses - beginning with its golden appearance and finishing with warming, white chocolate-like flavors. This is accomplished by adding cacao nibs from TCHO and fresh vanilla beans to our bourbon barrel-aged wheatwine-style ale, complementing the rich notes of coconut, honey, caramel and vanilla from extensive barrel-aging.

Tart of Darkness

Tart of Darkness® (2017)

Tart of Darkness is a sour stout aged in oak. Brewed to resemble a stout at its foundation, the journey into tartness begins with fermentation in large oak puncheons at Bruery Terreux, where it’s treated to a special blend of souring bacteria and wild yeast cultures. Following a slow but wildly active fermentation, the beer is transferred for extended aging into a dedicated collection of used oak barrels for Tart of Darkness. This includes emptied bourbon barrels from The Bruery that previously held beers such as Black Tuesday®. After nature takes its course, the result emerges as a perfectly tart yet awesomely dark and roasty sour stout. It's not a style you see very often; and, in our opinion, it's not a style seen often enough. Our sour stout features notes of tart, dark fruit, vanilla and chocolate with a subtle toasty character and undercurrents of oak.
