This beer was created by Adrienne Ballou and imimplements numerous wine making techniques into the fermentations and refermentations. These new techniques and hybrid thinking will for sure make this an interesting beer.
“Bière de Blanc du Bois was brewed with Hill Country well water, barley, wheat, and hops. It was fermented with our unique mixed culture of microorganisms, which includes farmhouse yeasts, naturally occurring wild yeasts harvested from our air and land in the Texas Hill Country, and native souring bacteria. After extended fermentation and maturation in oak barrels, it was refermented with Texas-grown Blanc du Bois grapes. Bière de Blanc du Bois is 6.7% alcohol by volume, 3.2 pH, and has a finishing gravity of 1.004 (1.0 degree Plato). It is unfiltered, unpasteurized, and 100% naturally conditioned. The artwork for Bière de Blanc du Bois was created by our in-house artist Josh Cockrell. ” described by Jester King.
This will release 4pm on Friday December 19th in 500ml bottles ($16). Approx. 800 bottles will be released
