Blended Appalachian Wild Ale
a blended mixed-culture ale fermented with a menagerie of local 2nd use fruit including muscadine grapes, merlot grapes, blueberry and cherry
After a three year hiatus, we are beyond excited to re-introduce Local Snacks. With a re-imagined format into cans, this is the first fruited mixed-culture offering that has found its home in that format.
This year’s blend consists of second fruit cherry, second fruit muscadine grape, second fruit blueberry, and second fruit merlot grape. Once blended into our bottling tank, this unique blend is can conditioned in the same manner we treat our naturally carbonated bottled offerings.
The concept process is rather simple; we heavily fruit the initial barrel aged sour beer to create a very intensely fruited sour beer. Because so much initial fruit is used, there is still quite a bit of fruit that can be extracted into another beer. We then send more 4-6 month barrel aged blonde sour beer back onto that very same fruit. Though a bit less fruit than some of our heavily fruited appalachian wild ales, Local Snacks is a fantastic showcase of each fruit and combines to be a saturated fruit cocktail. Boasting subtle notes of oaky vanilla along with jammy hawaiian punch, each sip unravels layers of each fruit, hiding in each and every can.
