This Friday, November 15th at 4pm, we'll be releasing Bière de Syrah Blend 3!
Bière de Syrah is mature barrel aged wild beer refermented with Texas Syrah grapes. We brew wort with well water, local grain from Blacklands Malt, and a blend of fresh and aged hops. We primary ferment the wort in stainless steel before racking to neutral oak for long term maturation (typically around 12 to 18 months). We then crush and de-stem the grapes and add them to the mature beer. After re-fermentation, we naturally condition the beer in bottles and kegs.
Blend 3 is 6.4% alcohol by volume, 8 IBU, 3.5 pH, and has a finishing gravity of 1.000 (0 degrees Plato). It will be released at our tasting room and kitchen at 4pm this Friday. It will be available by the glass and in bottles to go (500ml/$20). We have 1,020 bottles available with a three bottle limit. We do not expect Bière de Syrah Blend 3 to see distribution.
Cheers and Happy Veterans Day to all those who serve / have served!
