2018 bottle releases:
Maginta (American Sour / Wild Ale with Beets and Ginger) / Release date: Friday May 25th,
This beer was based off a taproom favorite we did last year. I took some golden sour out of a wine barrel to make room for blood orange puree (what would become Acid Factory Sanguine – gose inspired BF/MF sour) and with the beer I removed we did some infusions of beets, ginger and basil. This bottle conditioned execution includes just the beets and ginger and it’s a very clean tasting sour with the ginger addition spicing it up. There’s subltle brett funk and lactic flavors in the finish that round it out nicely.
