This Friday, July 6th at 4pm, we're excited to release our 2018 batch of Atrial Rubicite (blend no. 8)!
Atrial Rubicite is our barrel-aged sour beer refermented with raspberries. For our 2018 blend, we racked 22 oak barrels of mature beer (about 1,320 gallons) onto 5,760 pounds of raspberries (4.4 pounds per gallon) in early April. After about six weeks of fruit refermentation, we packaged the beer and allowed it to naturally referment in bottles and kegs.
For this year's blend, we have about 6,500 bottles (500ml/$20) with a bottle limit of six (6) per customer per day. 2018 Atrial Rubicite will also be available by the glass at Jester King. We bottled about 100 magnums this year, which we plan to do a lottery for sometime in the next few weeks. Aside from special events, 2018 Atrial Rubicite will only be available at Jester King.
We're also excited to have a special food pop-up for Atrial Rubicite weekend from Chef John Bates and the Noble Sandwich Co. team called Interstellar BBQ.
