We're very happy to introduce 2018 SPON — Texas Plum & Nectarine! It's a blend of one and two year old 100% spontaneously fermented beer from 2016 and 2017, refermented with Bruce sour plums from Lightsey Farms in Mexia, Texas, Morris plums from Engel Farms in Stonewall, Texas, and white nectarines from Cooper Farms in Fairfield, Texas!
Our SPON beers are 100% spontaneously fermented with airborne yeast and bacteria collected overnight as the wort rests in our coolship. The beer then slowly ferments and matures in oak barrels for somewhere between one to three years depending on the batch. For this blend, we racked one and two year old beer out of oak and added it to 450 lbs. of sour plums, 100 lbs. of plums, and 400 lbs. of nectarines for refermentation. With our SPON beers, as well as for everything we brew, our aim is to create something uniquely tied to a cross-section of time, place, and people, never to be repeated or duplicated again. This is what farmhouse brewing means to us and gives us passion for what we do.
2018 SPON — Texas Plum & Nectarine is 5.3% ABV and was packaged in June of this year. It was naturally refermented in bottles and kegs. It will be released today (October 25th, 2018) at our Funk n' Sour Fest for ticket holders (onsite and to go)! It will be available to the public by the glass and in bottles to go when our restaurant and tasting room opens tomorrow (10.27.18) at 4pm. We only have 719 bottles (375ml/$25) with a bottle limit of one per customer per day.
