We're pleased to release 2020 SPON Muscat! SPON Muscat is 100% spontaneously fermented beer aged in oak barrels for one to three years refermented with Texas-grown Muscat grapes. We let the unfermented beer rest overnight in our coolship, then 100% spontaneously ferment with native yeast. Our goal is to capture the terroir of the Texas Hill Country through the "magic" of spontaneous fermentation.
Muscat is one of our favorite grapes to work with. It imparts a honeysuckle, cotton candy, elderflower, tropical fruit character we're quite fond of. We added the crushed grapes to a mature blend of SPON, then let it ferment to total dryness. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and 100% naturally conditioned. 7.3% abv.
