Russian River Compunction to Return

Russian-River-Brewing-CompanyThe long awaited return of Russian River Compunction was announced yesterday on Facebook by the brewery. Accompanying the news was a video of two loyal RRBC employees slicing, pitting and removing stickers from over 500 pounds of pluots.

Compunction is a sour blonde ale with brett, aged in Chardonnay barrels with copious amounts of fresh pluots. Russian River stated they “have absolutely no idea when it will be ready,” but this will be a tasty surprise when it finally hits the taps at the brewery in Northern California. (Can you say “growler trade?”)

Russian River Brewing Company is located at 724 4th Street in Santa Rosa.

    • I was kinda joking with that comment, but a couple people have pointed that out to me. I thought they would let some of the Belgian ales go out in growlers but you’re right about the wild ales.
