Almanac Dogpatch Strawberry Coming This Month
Almanac Beer Co. is kicking off the Summer of Sour this month beginning with Dogpatch Strawberry. If you were a fan of the brewery’s Dogpatch Sour (Flanders Red Ale aged in wine barrels with local cherries), then you’re in for another treat right here. For this latest installment in the Farm to Barrel series, they added 1,000 pounds of tremendously flavorful local strawberries to Dogpatch Sour before aging it in used wine barrels for 8 months, finishing up at 7.5% ABV.
Look for Dogpatch Strawberry in 375mL bottles and limited draft throughout California this month. Check out the Almanac site to see where you can track a bottle down, or perhaps even have some shipped to your house.
Swanton Berry Farm is nestled in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Warmed by the summer sun during the day and cooled by humid marine breezes at night, Swanton’s fields grow some of the sweetest strawberries in California. We hoarded these magical berries and added them to our Dogpatch Sour ale before aging it in used wine barrels. This complex beer is our ode to the fertile coastal farmlands of California.
