This Friday, September 14th at 4pm, we'll be releasing 2018 Aurelian Lure — our barrel-aged sour beer refermented with apricots!
For this year's blend, we took eight oak barrels of beer and refermented it with 1,200 pounds of apricots at a ratio of 3 lbs. per gallon. We de-pitted the apricots from Blossom Hill Orchard in Patterson, California by hand before adding them to one of our foudres for refermentation.
2018 Aurelian Lure (Blend No. 6) is 6.1% alcohol by volume and was packaged in July. It will be available by the glass and in bottles to go. We have about 1,300 bottles available (500ml/$20) with a bottle limit of three per customer per day. It will only be available at Jester King outside of special events. We hope you enjoy!
