Odell The Meddler Oud Bruin Ale

A resurrected style from the Flemish region of Belgium, The Meddler Oud Bruin Ale is a crafty concoction, comprised of several generations of brown ales, barrel aged and blended. Wild yeasts and Lactobacillus meddle with the brew for over 18 months creating complexity and depth of flavor. Hints of malty sweet chocolate and vanilla toy with a hauntingly sour finish. Intricate  yet balanced, The Meddler will leave you craving more of the mysterious brew.

 

Firestone Walker Bretta Rose

IMG_1263Thirty miles north of Barrelworks lies the fertile Santa Maria Valley.  Its warm days and cool marine layer-fed evenings allow for a cornucopia of fruits and vegetables to be grown in its rich soil.  One of Santa Maria’s crown jewels is locally grown raspberries.  We jumped at the opportunity to ferment fresh local raspberries with one of our Barrelworks creations.  Behold Bretta Rosé!  A low-alcohol Berliner Weisse style ale, acidified and matured in French oak puncheons for 6 months, is the foundation for this gem.  Add 1000 lbs. of fresh raspberries, allow a secondary  wild fermentation for 4 more months and voila (!), we have a crisp effervescent concoction, bursting with raspberry perfume and flavor, a rosé color, bracing acidity, and a clean and refreshing finish.
