Upland Sour Ale Reservations Announced
From Upland Brewing – We’re releasing four styles of sour ale this December: Strawberry Lambic, Blueberry Lambic, Peach Lambic, and Dantalion Dark Wild Ale. Reservations for the sours will open at 12:01am Wednesday, December 1st on uplandbeer.com.
In the coming days, we will announce on our website how many bottles per style each person may reserve, along with exact dates during which the bottles will be available for pickup at our Bloomington Tap Room.
Upland currently makes nine styles of sour ale. Eight of them are Belgian-style lambics, to which whole fruits are added while the beer is aging in oak casks. The ninth style we produce is Dantalion Dark Wild Ale. Like our lambics, this sour ale is aged for approximately a year-and-a-half in oak casks, but it features a special blend of spices rather than fruit.
And here’s a teaser for you: we’re also working on a new beer we’re referring to as a Sour Reserve. It won’t be ready for release this December, but it’s something to look forward to in 2011!
