Thorny Horn Sour Raspberry Brown Ale Released from Phillips Brewery

Pucker up and play the sour note

Phillips Brewery Thorny Horn Sour Raspberry Brown Ale is here

Phillips Thorny Horn Sour November 3rd, 2015: Pucker up and play the sour note! Thorny Horn Raspberry Brown Ale, our latest seasonal beer, is brewed intentionally sour. Born as a medium bodied brown ale, it is infused with raspberries and augmented with lively Lactobacillus bacteria, the magical secret to sour. (**tasty fun-fact: our ‘lacto’ strain was actually cultured in-house from our own spent grain)

Pouring a deep ruby red colour topped by a frothy bubblegum-pink head, a tangy berry nose leads to a rich, slightly sharp raspberry tartness through the body that finishes puckeringly dry. This sour brew is proof that sometimes the best notes fall outside of traditional scales!

Thorny Horn is only available from private craft-focused liquor stores for a limited time! If you find yourself in our neighborhood this Thursday, Nov. 5th, come on by between 4-6 for a special draft tasting.
