WHAT IS A SOUR BEER YOU MAY ASK?
Berliner Weisse is a historical sour wheat beer originating from Germany. This beer is brewed to a low ABV with a moderate amount of acidity imparted by the natural Lactobacillus fermentation (same souring bacteria found naturally in yogurt). Sometimes this beer would be served with a side of syrup for the consumer to add to their desire (sweeten the acidic profile). Our unique twist is the addition of fruit into the beer to create a balance between tart and juicy. The low ABV and juicy acidity make this a refreshing and tart beer perfect for the summer.
THE INSPIRATION BEHIND OUR COUNTY SOUR SERIES
County Sour Series was spawned with the idea that we would age our Berliner Weisse (kettle sour) on fruit typically grown in Canadian fruit-belts and/or "counties". The first sour we brewed was Peach, using peaches from the Niagara County in Ontario, thus the term "County Sour Series". Living in Canada we know it is difficult to source locally grown fruit in the winter months but we try our best to keep it Canadian as often as possible!
Although we may keep the upcoming sours “top secret” for now, here is the timeline you can expect to see the different beers make their way into the market!
