Three new aged brews have rested and are ready to grace the palate. Meet Endless Night, a new bourbon barrel-aged stout collab with the stout masters over at 3 Sons Brewing Co.; Ember Song, a smooth oud bruin with smoked cacao and vanilla; and Pluot Twist, an oak barrel-aged sour ale starring California-grown organic pluots.
All three bottles will be released on Thursday, August 4th at all five taproom locations as well as for California shipping. Check out all the details below.
*Collaboration with 3 Sons Brewing Co.
Bourbon Barrel-Aged Stout with Coconut, Vanilla, & Cacao
Together with stout masters, 3 Sons Brewing Co., we present Endless Night, the barrel-aged stout of our collective dreams. We started with a double mash to deliver a big-bodied beer. As the name of the term implies, we mashed in twice and combined the first runnings to create a super concentrated wort. (And in our constant effort to reduce waste, we brewed another beer out of the second runnings!) The stout went on to rest in Breckenridge bourbon barrels for 10 months before being conditioned on organic Sri Lankan toasted coconut, Tahitian vanilla bean, and Ghanaian cacao. The result exceeded our dreams: a jet-black brew with a decadent, thick body. Aromas of toasted coconut, melted vanilla bean ice cream and marzipan intermingle with flavors of toffee, bourbon-soaked ladyfingers and chocolate mousse. Prepare yourself for the best kind of Endless Night.
Price: $28 / 500ml
Available August 4th at 9am.
Oak Barrel-Aged Oud Bruin with Smoked Cacao & Vanilla
Light the fire and cozy up with Ember Song, our most oak-forward mixed fermentation brew to date. Our take on a classic oud bruin, Ember Song aged for 17 months in Roes Red barrels with oak soaked in Islay peated Scotch whisky. About a month before bottling, we added organic cacao that we had smoked with cherry wood, and luxurious Tahitian vanilla bean—complementing the ale’s savoriness. Flavors of cocoa, cherry, and vanilla with slight orange zest dance through its brownish-maroon hue. Smooth and oaky, Ember Song drinks like a fine port wine, with a touch of smokiness, reminiscent of a campfire crackling in the distance.
Price: $15 / 375ml
Oak Barrel-Aged Sour Ale with Pluots
And now for a Pluot Twist! A new sour beer blend starring California-grown organic pluots, aged up to 14 months in two types of oak barrels—cider and cherry wine—from Mission-Trail Ranches in Bradley, CA. Spoiler alert: This brew has gracefully aged into quite the complex creation, with layers of flavor beyond the featured hybrid fruit. Complementary aromas of white nectarine and pear arise from its straw color and bright white head. Expect this ale to deliver essences of lemon-lime zest and riesling wine-like minerality on the tongue with a fair amount of funk. But don’t take the full beer review from us…Pluot Twist produces a unique experience for every palate—you’ll just have to taste it for yourself.
