Commercial description:

After well over a year of waiting, Funky Lomaland Aged in Red Wine Barrels is finally ready to drink! This is a truly special beer. In the fall of 2013, we brewed a batch of Lomaland–our year round saison–and fermented it with a little added space dust: Brettanomyces Claussenii & Brettanomyces Bruxellensis Trois. These two slow-moving yeast strains added a marvelously funky complexity that starts with the barnyardy/fermented-fruit aroma and continues in the dry, deliciously nuanced flavor. The long rest in red wine barrels has given Funky Lomaland a gorgeously fruit-saturated finish & an oaky, rich backbone. Important thing to understand: this is not a sour beer (Brettanomyces do not make beer sour.) 6.2% ABV

Modern Times Lomaland Fermentorium is located at 3725 Greenwood St. in San Diego, CA.
