2017 Almanac Beer Company "Farmer's Reserve Blackberry" Sour Blonde Ale w/ Blackberries Aged in Wine Barrels, California (375ml)

SKU #1323965

"We love blackberries. Tart, sweet, and complex but guarded by thorny branches, these alluring fruits have been a favorite of ours since we added them to our very first beer. Farmer's Reserve Blackberry is a sour blonde ale infused with loads of coastal blackberries from California’s Santa Cruz Mountains, and aged in wine barrels to mature with our house culture of brettanomyces and lactobacillus. The blackberries ferment away leaving behind a brilliant purple hue and complex minerality, reminiscent of old-world French red wine. Pair with seared duck breast, blackberry custard tarts, and Beef Bourguignon." (Producer Notes)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
