This upcoming Friday the 24th at 1:00 pm, we’ll be releasing our 2017 bottling of “Maker of Things”, our sour red ale aged in our American oak foeder. Please remember to support local businesses when you are doing your holiday shopping, especially your local “makers of things”, whatever their chosen media may be!
We have enough beer that we will not have to place bottle limits on this beer...for now. 750 ml bottles are $16.99 each, 375 ml bottles are $8.99.
Amazingly, we also still have 6 cases left of the 2016 bottling, and those will be for sale at the same price.
Friday and Saturday only, we will also be offering a 15% discount on all “merch”, including clothing, hydroflasks, woodcut prints, and glassware. We also have a number of other barrel-aged bottled beers still available at the taproom (check our website for the full bottle list and draft list). Now the best part, the story of this beer: Maker of Things is a continuously-aged sour red ale that lives in our 30 barrel oak foeder. When we feel that the timing and flavor are just right, we remove a certain amount of the beer for packaging, and then we re-fill the foeder with freshly fermented red base. This year’s batch is definitely the best we have produced yet, as the oak character mellows and the average age of the beer increases. This year’s batch was at an AVERAGE age of fourteen months when bottled, and still contains about 9% of the first beer to fill the foeder (an old ale we named The Aecern). It is 7.5% alcohol by volume, and the pH was at 3.2 when bottled. It was bottled conditioned for over two months before release. This beer should age well for years if properly cellared, but it is ready to drink right now.
