A Note on This Beer
Why do we love Cellador Ales so much? Let us count the ways:
- Huge Scores! — Cellador is one of the top Wild and Sour breweries in the country, with a higher Untappd score than Jester King, Allagash, and Urban Family.
- Barrel Expertise! — They’re one of the few breweries in the country that focuses exclusively on 100% barrel-fermented beers. Thrillist lists them as one of the Best Breweries in Los Angeles, and Timeout calls them “one of the best beer makers in L.A.”
- Freaky Flavors! — They constantly impress us with complex flavors we don’t see anywhere else. Case in point: Figue Fumêe! It’s a Whiskey Barrel-Aged Wild Red Ale blend that boasts a theme park of puckering tartness and savory smokiness. How cool is that!?
To make Figue Fumêe, the brewers blended two Wild Red Ales, both aged for 8 months in Whiskey Barrels. Then, they took some locally-sourced figs, hot smoked them on fig tree wood, and added ‘em to the blend before aging some more. Finally, came the pièce de résistance: bottle conditioning with real Vermont Maple Syrup!
With every sip, you get a tart, warming mouthful of smoked figgy pudding lightly drizzled in maple syrup sweetness. It’s an experience that @Phil B. on Untappd admires as “So dang complex, unlike anything I’ve ever tried before.”
Now’s your chance to be one of only 240 lucky Tavoursters to get a bottle of Figue Fumêe and discover your own love for Cellador.
