(Austin,TX) – As we announced yesterday, we’ll be releasing 2016 Atrial Rubicite this Friday, July 22nd. Atrial Rubicite is our barrel aged sour beer fermented with our mixed culture of native yeast and bacteria, then refermented with raspberries. Between primary fermentation, extended barrel maturation, and refermentation with fruit, Atrial Rubicite takes around one year to make. This is our sixth blend ever. It’s 5.1% alcohol by volume, 14 IBU, 3.2 pH, and has a finishing gravity of 1.006 (1.5 Plato).
Here are the details for the release. It will be available at our tasting room in bottles and on draught starting at 4pm this Friday. We have 4,000 bottles available (500ml/$20). The bottle limit is two per customer per day. Outside of special events, Atrial Rubicite will only be available at Jester King and will not see distribution. We’ll be releasing the following quantities on these days:
Friday, 7/22 at 4pm — 1,500 bottles & four 50L kegs
Saturday, 7/23 at Noon — 2,000 bottles & six 50L kegs
Sunday, 7/24 at Noon — 500 bottles & two 50L kegs
We also have a special, local culinary surprise for Saturday afternoon! We hope you enjoy this year’s blend!
