Barrel Roll Club Members-
We’ve been bottling, carb-testing, and bottle-waxing these past few weeks and your third quarter box is almost ready. Pickup day is Saturday, June 27th, and we wanted to reach out and give you more details on the first two beers: First Crush and Sanguinello. Stay tuned to your email next week for more info on what else will be in the box, including your club exclusive for Q3.
“Sanguinello” – Sour blonde aged in white wine barrels with blood orange juice – 330ml
Sanguinello is the name given to a variety of blood oranges, drawing on the deep crimson and ruby color of the citrus flesh. For Sanguinello the beer we sourced blood oranges locally, squeezing the fresh juice into Sauvignon Blanc barrels which held nine and eighteen month old sour blonde ale. The resulting beer is a beautiful hazy pink, balancing the tart base beer with the aromatics of citrus. We recommend enjoying the delicate fruit notes of Sanguinello fresh.
“First Crush” – Sour Red Ale Aged in Red Wine Barrels with Syrah Grape Juice – 750ml
Winemakers often refer to their harvest as “The Crush,” a reference to their process of literally crushing the juice from freshly harvested grapes. We’ve borrowed this term for “First Crush,” the very first beer we’ve ever blended from our stock of Syrah wine barrels filled with sour red ale. A mix of 18 month old barrels build complex base flavors of funk and oak, and the addition of Syrah grape juice after primary fermentation adds vinous, tannic notes of red wine, ripe fruit and leather. First Crush is ready to enjoy now, but will continue to evolve in your cellar for many years.
Picking your beers up on 6/27:
Pickups and bottle sales (if you want to snag extras past what’s included in your box) will begin at 9am on Saturday the 27th. Once the Tasting Room opens for full service at 11am we’ll also be offering bottle pours. If you’re just looking to pickup your beers and you arrive before noon, please follow the signs to the rear of building behind the loading dock. After 12pm, pickups will move to the Tasting Room counter from the main beer line. We recommend taking advantage of the pickup line in the morning to get your beers as quickly as possible.
