Spinnakers Brewpub Launches Happy New Beer Barrel Aged Sour
It’s the year of the sour! 2015’s Vancouver Beer Awards dedicated their annual theme to this unique style and close to 1,400 BC residents ranked sour beer as their #4 preferred style, beating out lagers and pilsners according to the Craft Beer survey by BeerMeBC. Will the sour beer craze grind to a halt come January 31st? We think not.
Get ready to change up the age old phrase when the clock strikes midnight in just a few short weeks:
Spinnakers’ first bottled barrel aged sour, and certainly not the last. Our house lager was barrel aged in red wine French oak barrels before being soured and finally, dry hopped.
Brewery Tasting Notes:
-Lightly tart, with pleasant candy and fruit aromas
-Clean, dry finish,
-Excellent hop aromatics from the dry hop
-Dry-hopped with Northwest varietals
-Light, sharply carbonated.
