A Note on This Beer
Emperor Napoleon Bonapart famously ate meals by himself, in near darkness, as quickly as possible. What a waste! The man had access to all the finest foods in Paris, and he chose to scarf down bland suppers without company.
If only he’d been able to try today’s Emperor's Blood Fruited Sour. It positively overflows with ripe blackberry, tangy raspberry, drippy mango, and sweet blood orange — a symphony of flavors so sumptuous, even Napoleon wouldn’t want to rush through it. Vanilla and a touch of milk sugar lend the brew a smooth, creamy finish.
Like Napoleon teaming up with the Ottomans, the crew at Barrier pulled in allies from the other end of the American craft empire to create this tart and juicy brew. They joined forces with Kings Brewing — the team Hop Culture calls a ‘Standout,’ whose beers are ‘rabidly traded online.’
Fortunately, you won’t have to scour trade forums to get a taste of this fruity brew. You can order some right from your own throne, whether you rule from an easy chair, a porch swing, or a hammock. If you’re a truly benevolent emperor, you’ll score a few cans for your buddies, too.
