Beer Description

Inspired by breweries in the Lambic region of Belgium & especially, our friends at Cantillon. 100% spontaneously fermented

Although we enjoyed aging Batch #1 in used La Folie barrels from New Belgium Brewery, one of which was the renowned PH1 barrel, Batch #2 is something completely different. Out of respect for our Belgian brewing friends, we call this style Sonambic, a portmanteau between Sonoma and Lambic. We stole this term from our friend Brian Hunt at Moonlight, our local farmhouse brewery. In 2007, we executed a second spontaneous fermentation, making yet another batch of Sonambic. This year, we blended those two batches to create our second bottling of Beatification which we are very excited about! Batch #2 has a big grapefruit aroma and grapefruit rind flavor with funky Brettanomyces and a tart finish.
