2017 SPON 5 — Three Year Blend


This Friday, we’ll release our fifth and final SPON three year blend of the year. The blend consists of 100% spontaneously fermented beer from 2016, 2015, and 2014, which then matured in bottles and kegs for almost another full year. Altogether, the beer took nearly four years to make.

Our fifth blend of the year was brewed with unfiltered Hill Country well water, Texas malted barley, raw Texas wheat, and aged hops from the attic of our barn. It was cooled overnight in our coolship and inoculated with naturally occurring airborne yeast and bacteria. It was 100% spontaneously fermented in oak barrels, blended across multiple years, and naturally conditioned in kegs and bottles placed on their sides. It was blended on February 14th, 2017 and packaged the following day. It’s 5.8 percent alcohol by volume, 32 IBU, 3.3 pH, and has a finishing gravity of 1.002 (0.5 Plato).

2017 SPON 5 — Three Year Blend will be released when our tasting room opens at 4pm on Friday, December 22nd. It will be available by the glass and in bottles to go:

375ml bottles / 1,350 bottles / $20 / limit three per customer per day
