Russian River Beatification Batch 007 Release Sept. 20

russian-river-beatificationThe wait is finally over – after bottling back in March earlier this year, Russian River Beatification Batch 007 is finally ready to hit the streets. Bottles will go on sale at the pub on Sunday, September 20 at 8am via the back rollup door.

The details:

  • $20 per 375mL bottle
  • Limit 6 bottles per person
  • Approx 500 cases produced
  • Draft will be available when the pub opens at 11am
  • No growlers

For those of you keeping score at home and comparing this to the Batch 006 release, yes – the price is higher (up from $18), the limits are halved (down from 12 per person), and less was produced (down from over 1000 cases).

Commercial description:

This beer is very unique and inspired by breweries in the Lambic region of Belgium and, especially, our friends at Cantillon. It is 100% spontaneously fermented, meaning yeast is not added. Once the beer is brewed, it is transferred to a cool-ship or “horny” tank located in our barrel room at the pub. There it sits overnight and collects whatever funky wild yeast and bacteria may be living in the room. The next day it is transferred to oak wine barrels where it ferments wildly and ages for a few months. The end result is a wild, spontaneously fermented, sour, and tasty hand-crafted beer! 5.5% ABV

Russian River Brewing Company is located at 725 4th Street in Santa Rosa, CA.
