About The Beers


Feral One, Batch Four

American Wild Ale

We humbly offer you Feral One on the occasion of our Fourth anniversary.  Feral One is an annual blend of our best efforts, from hand-selected well-aged barrels, chosen by the Masterblender and Barrelmeister.    An earthy funky nose gives way to complex ester notes of dried apricots, strawberry, guava and slight orange zest.  Toasted mature oak, lavender, vanilla and cinnamon lurk in the background.   A mouth-watering acidity and soft tannins are punctuated by a firm carbonation.  Savor now, or age longer for a special occasion. 

A Santé!  



SLOambic, Batch Three

Wild ale fermented with blackberries

We are fortunate to have great relationships with our local growers who provide us with superb fruit for our beers.  Like last year, we had the opportunity to purchase fresh marionberries and boysenberries, both close cousins to the blackberry, so we pounced.  For this vintage, fresh berries were added to Sour Opal, a beer matured up to 24 months in oak barrels, and then fermented using our proprietary blend of microflora for an additional three months.   Bursting with ripe berries and brambles, as well as hints of jam, the fruit gives way to a rustic funk and soft oak flavors, finishing with a mouth-watering acidity.  We humbly present 2016 SLOambic. 

A Santé!
