Firestone Walker Krieky Bones

Firestone Walker Krieky Bones

Wild Specialty Beer5.7% ABV

Firestone Walker Brewing CompanyPaso Robles, CA

What began as a birthday gift, took on a life of its own. Proprietor David Walker cornered us one day and requested a sour cherry fermented beer for his 50th birthday. Done. A handful were sold at a Liberation, after which our loyal patrons demanded more. Voilà, Krieky Bones Batch #2! This beer begins its life as a Flanders Red style beer aged 24 months in a 2200 gallon French oak foeder. Sour Montmorency cherries are added and allowed a secondary fermentation. The aroma is of cherry pie complete with flavors of pie crust and spicy notes. Vienna malt notes give way to an assertive acidity, and a bright carbonation.

The Bruery Humulus Terreux

The Bruery Humulus Terreux

Wild Specialty Beer5.7% ABV40 IBU

The BrueryPlacentia, CA

HUMULUS TERREUX humulus_terreux Humulus Terreux is the type of beer that gets our stomachs tied up in knots of excitement. It’s a chance for us to experiment with both hops and yeast, creating unique, juicy & funky flavors with just these seemingly simple, earthen ingredients. Each batch of Humulus Terreux will use a different hop varietal and one of the several strains of Brettanomyces yeasts that we have incubating in our laboratory to create a one of a kind, wildly traditional bière™. The flavor possibilities are endless when combining possible hop notes of citrus, pine, flowers or grass with the barnyard funk, earth and tropics that can come from a 100% Brettanomyces fermentation. While each beer will showcase a different, distinct character, the overall result will always be dry, funky and delightfully hoppy. FOOD PAIRING Each batch of Humulus Terreux will taste a bit different, but given its basic nature, it should always be great with a home grown salad and simply grilled proteins of all sorts.

Boulevard Rye On Rye

Boulevard Rye On Rye

Specialty Beer12.0% ABV47 IBU

Boulevard Brewing CompanyKansas City, MO

Why Rye? This assertively flavorful grain is more often associated with whiskey than with ales. Even in that arena, it has largely been eclipsed by corn and barley, the sources of bourbon and scotch. But when we procured some seasoned barrels from our friends at Templeton Rye, we asked ourselves, “Why not?” Why not brew a rich, tawny rye ale, then mellow it in the warmth of charred oak rye whiskey casks? Two kinds of malted rye provide spicy sweetness, giving way to notes of caramelized wood and
