Almanac Beer Co. – Dogpatch Sour Returns, Emperor Norton Debuts
(San Francisco,CA) – Almanac Beer Company announces the return of their Dogpatch Sour as well as the debut of their fresh ale, Meet The Emperor. Read on for details on both.
This barrel-aged wild ale is named for our San Francisco neighborhood and pays tribute to the Flanders Red style of beer. This lightly tart ale is brewed with California Rainier cherries using a house blend of wild yeasts, bacteria, and SF sourdough yeast, then aged in wine barrels.
Suggested pairings: Ripe figs, blue cheese, seafood bouillabaisse.
The second release in our new Fresh Beer Limited series is available now!
Emperor Norton is an eccentric ale brewed in honor of this beloved 19th century San Francisco denizen, best known for issuing his own currency, calling for the overthrow of the Federal Government, and prophesying a bridge connecting San Francisco and Oakland. Our tribute to him is a Belgian-style tripel brewed with California-grown summer apricots and generously dry-hopped with Citra and Hallertau Blanc hops. Enjoy in the company of unconventional friends!
Suggested pairings: Hangtown Fry & Summer Salads with Stone Fruit.
