1. Cross Fertilization - A Golden Sour with unmalted wheat and dry hopped with aged Summit and Ultra hops. We took a few elements from Lambic production to see how they would fair being implemented into our process! The result is an extremely interesting and delicious sour beer, with a great traditional farmhouse funk and balanced acidity. 942 bottles were produced. Limited distribution across the lower peninsula. $20/bottle. Corked & Caged 750ml. Limit 6/person.
2. Montauk - Our modern interpretation of a Kvass style bread beer. 200 lbs of bread from Field & Fire Bakery were used in the mash. We then fermented in stainless with cultures captured from flora at Taum Sauk mountain in Missouri. We bottled after a 3 month slumber in oak. This is our first beer fermented from 100% wild sourced yeast, nothing lab grown. Brewed with our good friends at Black Project Spontaneous & Wild Ales in Denver, CO. 780 bottles were produced. Limited distribution across the lower peninsula. $15/bottle. Corked & Caged 750ml. Limit 3/person.
3. Sympatric - A sour golden ale aged in wine barrels with Seyval Blanc grapes from Berrien Domaine Vineyard. 55% Sour Golden beer, 45% Seyval Blanc. This is truly a wine/beer hybrid. Mandarin orange, champagne, light acidity, and a touch of oak make this something special. 395 bottles were produced. Brewery only release. $24/bottle. Corked & Caged 750ml. Limit 3/person.
4. Melanocarpa - Wine Barrel Aged Golden Sour with 3lb/bbl of Aronia berries (chokeberries) from Tanglewood winery in Holland. Berry and pomegranate flavors, balanced by a healthy dose of tannins. 305 bottles were produced. Brewery only release. $24/bottle. Corked & Caged 750ml. Limit 3/person.
Proxies are allowed. We just need a copy of the purchaser's ID and the proxy's ID. It will be the proxy's responsibility to pay for the bottles at pickup.
