Barrel Blend No. 001 is the codename of a new Barrel Fermentation permutation series. This is the first blend of an ongoing experiment in Saison recipes fermented directly in Red and White Wine Oak Barrels with a fusion of Saison yeast and Brettanomyces.

Blending from unique, individual red and white wine barrels creates a litany of flavors amplified by almost a year spent fermenting directly in barrels. Sweetness from the oak barrels is immediately followed by aromatics produced by the estery qualities of a Saison and delicate use of Nelson Sauvin hops. Upon further investigation, the character instilled by the use of Brettanomyces during fermentation produces a complementary fruit-forward aftertaste with a clean, dry finish.

A preview of this unique blend of oak wine barrel fermented Brett Saisons will be available on Saturday, December 8th exclusively at Fine Creek Brewing Company's Wild & Weird Fest.

This recipe will later be released in the taproom at 401 Second Street along with bottle-conditioned 500 ml bottles fit for cellaring. This will be the first in an ongoing exploration of the infinite number of permutations possible as a result of purposeful, experimental barrel-fermentation and blending.
