Sour Diesel is tart Pale Ale with a hefty dry hopped putting off assertive ganja and grapefruit aromas. As the thick hop aroma sets the tone for your palate, there is an initial shock at the sour nature of the first sip. Slowly as you work your way through the glass, the tart acidic nature of Sour Diesel marries with the bright grapefruit notes of the hops, which in turn bridges the gap to the dank resinous hop character initially delivered.

'Made in Kenucky by Kentuckians' Originally brewed as a conceptualization from our friends at the Nachbar....This historical anomaly is one of the only styles of beer indigenous to the USA and it was originally brewed right here in the Bluegrass! Much like our more beloved and covet cousin sour mash bourbon, this ale is brewed in the manner of 'souring the mash'. First we start with a blend of grains similar to your favorite spirit, barley, rye, and corn and we start the sour mash. In that process, we are able to achieve a deliciously complex tart flavor that plays with the spiciness of rye, while finishing with a dry crispness from the corn. Moderately hopped to balance the sweetness of this Kentucky Common, one will get notes of dry fruit, sweet tarts, and hints of tannin from a very small amount of barrel aged character. ABV 6.5%

Born from our Salvaje and Reservado Series of beers, this year’s release is unlike anything you’ve had before. We co-fermented a robust stout with the juice from apples and Brett in a port wine Foeder where it aged until we blended it with our most sacred of beers: Curly Wolf and Heidbanger. This delicately tart and massively complex beer is extremely drinkable boasting characters of fig, vanilla, caramel, & apple pie with a warming finish.

We soured the wort on the Hot Side with Lactobacillus for a few days and then brewed up this smooth and hoppy sour. It tastes like a big bowl of fruity candy or some chewable flavored vitamins, but what’s the difference? It’s sweet, tart, and sassy, just like the tasty cherry pie that your favorite aunt makes. For all the Aunt Sally’s out there, You know who you are...
