Tonight's Tap It Tuesday at 6 pm is Gold Yeller. This NW style sour ale is one of our lightest offerings. Subtle aromas of honey and light bright lemon greet you in the nose. Soft malt and a lemony tartness on the palate give way to multiple layers of sour and oak that dance around the finish of this beer. 7.1% ABV / $6 glass.
In the next few months we will be bottling The Vine 2011 (draft should be available before the bottles, likely in about 30 days give or take), Blueberry & Sang Noir. There will be more bottle announcements to come, stay tuned!
