Alternate Takes #5

Barrel-aged Raspberry & Blueberry Sour

In the analog age of music, artists recorded take after take, experimenting with new sounds until a great record emerged. Our Alternate Takes series offers a peek into our iterative & creative R&D process, where each batch is celebrated as its own off-centered hit.

Alternate Takes #5 is our fruit-forward sour beer rounded by tartness & hints of vanilla & oak. This beer started as a blonde ale fermented with raspberries & aged in red wine barrels with brettanomyces & lactobacillus before being blended & additionally aged with insane amounts of blueberry. The mild brett funk plays well off the bright berry character which is balanced by a soft lactic sourness.

Select your brew of choice, enter your zip code and we will tell you where it has been delivered in the past 60 days. But wait! Before you hop in your ride and drive to pick up that elusive Dogfish you see on the screen, please, please call ahead to confirm availability. Just because a beer has been delivered doesn’t mean it is still on the shelves or that the keg has been tapped.
