We are excited to announce that we will be releasing Raspberry Funk Metal this Thursday at 4pm when the Tasting Room and Kitchen opens. Raspberry Funk Metal is a barrel aged imperial stout refermented with raspberries.
This year’s Raspberry Funk Metal is our second blend and our first bottle release as last year’s Raspberry Funk Metal was a draught-only release.
To make Raspberry Funk Metal, we brewed an imperial stout and fermented in stainless steel with our mixed culture of native yeasts and bacteria, then we barrel aged the beer in neutral oak barrels for 24 months. We blended the beer back together and introduced raspberries, refermenting those raspberries for about a month. The beer was then bottled and kegged in early April where we let it condition and develop carbonation.
Raspberry Funk Metal has an ABV of 9.3%. It will be available by the glass and in bottles to go ($22/750mL). There are around 700 bottles available with a limit of 3 bottles per person per day. This beer will not see distribution.
