Almanac Bourbon Sour Coming Early December 2013

Almanac-Beer-Co-Bourbon-Sour-PorterNow that you’ve probably devoured all of the Heirloom Pumpkin Barleywine, Almanac Beer Co. is back with another Farm to Barrel beer release. Meet Bourbon Sour Porter, a wild black ale aged in spent Kentucky bourbon barrels, coming in at 6% ABV.

As with all Farm to Barrel beers, this will be available in 375mL bottles and limited draft starting in early December 2013.

Commercial description: The life of a Kentucky oak barrel is one of giving: first to bourbon, then to dark strong ales, and finally we inoculate it with our Dogpatch Sour culture and fill it with robust porter. This inky black ale blends flavors of coffee, chocolate, dried fruit and Kentucky Bourbon with a pleasant tartness and funk. Pair with hearty winter stews or freshly shucked oysters.
