This Friday, October 5th, we're pleased to release CRU-55 Blend 2!
CRU-55 is our "grand cru" version of RU-55 Barrel Aged Sour Red Ale. For Blend 2, we aged RU-55 for 26 months in Pinot Noir Barrels. Soft, elegant acidity slowly developed over time as the beer took on a vinous character.
This is our second blend of CRU-55. It's 6.9% alcohol by volume and was packaged in August. It's 100% naturally conditioned in kegs and green bottles. It will be available by the glass and at bottles to go (375ml/$14) when our tasting room opens at 4pm this Friday. We have about 2,000 bottle available with a bottle limit of three per customer per day. We do not anticipate any distribution of CRU-55 beyond our tasting room and restaurant.
