Almanac Beer Company
A Note on This Beer
Sour Ale fans worship Almanac Brewing’s Farm to Barrel Series -- a collection of barrel-aged, fruit-loaded, and completely one-of-a-kind Sours that are collector’s items for hardcore lovers of all things tart.
Today’s collection of two Almanac hits showcases their top-shelf elegance, each scoring 4+ on Untappd, 98s on RateBeer, and flourishing with a refined interplay of fruits, wild yeast, and oak.
Apricot de Brettaville -This beer was made with one purpose: To be the ultimate apricot experience. San Joaquin Valley-grown apricots fold into layers of stonefruit and tropical juice from 12 strains of Brettanomyces yeast. Oak aging adds a touch of vanilla sweetness to this soft and juicy, wine-like Sour. 4.15 on Untappd, 98 on RateBeer.
White Label- Infused with Muscat Blanc grapes and Hallertau Blanc Hops, White Label is the tart lovechild of beer and wine culture. Himalayan Monukka raisins lend the mouthfeel depth, while the coriander and Grains of Paradise add a crisp zesty touch to this complex Farmhouse Sour. 4.15 on Untappd, 98 on RateBeer.
Drinking Almanac’s Farm to Barrel Series is like going to church for Sour fans, and these three brews showcase why they remain the go-to for many acidophiles (sour lovers). They’re perfect individually, but enjoy the pair together for a tasting flight of barrel-aged, sour fruited enlightenment.
