Ballast Point Sour Wench Blackberry Ale

Brewed by Ballast Point Brewing Company

Fruit Beer

Sour Wench was a Home Brew Mart recipe that we made every year for the Southern California Home brewers Fest in Temecula. This Blackberry Ale was originally developed by Ballast Point’s original Master Brewer Peter A’Hearn and Colby Chandler. While interning in Germany, Peter fell in love with the Berliner Weiss style of beer. A beer made with a procedure in which the mash was soured. The tartness of the Oregon State Marion Blackberries, at one pound per gallon, was a perfect addition for this sour style. Sour Wench is not aged in oak barrels. In the end, it’s a great bridge beer into the sour styles.

Our spin on a German classic connects lemon freshness with crisp lager. Effervescent notes of lemonade, lemon zest, and a hint of grainines
