This Thursday at 4pm when the Tasting Room and Kitchen opens, we will release 2019 分桃 “Fēn Táo” – barrel aged farmhouse ale refermented with Texas peaches.
To make this beer, we took beer that was aged in neutral oak barrels for 9 to 14 months. This beer was brewed with Hill Country well water, barley, wheat and hops and fermented with our mixed culture. After barrel aging, we then added 2,000 pounds of peaches and allowed it to referment for about a month. We bottled and kegged in June and let the beer naturally condition in its vessel. The peaches used for this year’s Fēn Táo are Regal and June Gold from Vogel Orchard in Stonewall, Texas.
2019 分桃 “Fēn Táo” has an ABV of 6%. It will be available by the glass and in bottles to go (500mL/$20). Around 1,300 bottles are available with a bottle limit of 4 bottles per person per day. We do not anticipate distribution of this beer.
