Firestone Walker Under Currant
Wild ale fermented with black currants.

In 2018 we challenged ourselves to using an array of fruit new to our palettes and practices. When offered a high quality freshly picked Black Currant sample, we couldn’t resist. We present to you a metamorphosis for your senses. Using 12 to 36 month aged Agrestic Ale as a base, to which we add 1.5lbs/gal Black Currants, the beer undergoes the final maturation in our French Oak “Fruiders” for an additional four months. A convergence of supple tannin and deep purple pigments, gooseberry jam, a mouth-watering acidity and earthy leather elicit notes of a beer having vinous roots. A new variant to one of the Barrelworks pioneers is born. Santé!
Batch #1, 2018

Barrel Ratio: 95% French oak
Maturation time: 12-36 months
Titratable Acidity: 8.3 g/L
Microflora: A proprietary blend of Brettanomyces and Lactic Acid Bacteria

Bruery Terreux Saison Ardennes
Saison Ardennes is a tart saison, hand-crafted to embody the dependable, spirited nature of a classic Belgian-style farmhouse ale. This includes a crisp malt profile, rustic floral and spice notes and lively carbonation. Our rendition expresses further depth and character from its fermentation and maturation in a large oak foeder. Saison Ardennes will continue to pleasantly evolve in the bottle, thanks to the presence of wild yeast added for bottle conditioning.

Bruery Terreux Tart of Darkness with Black Currants
Tart of Darkness is a sour Stout aged in oak, Brewed to resemble a Stout at it’s foundation, the journey into darkness begins with fermentation in large oak puncheons at Bruery Terreux, where it’s treated with a special blend of souring bacteria and wild yeast cultures. Following a slow but wildly active fermentation, the beer is transferred for extended aging into a dedicated collection of used oak barrels for Tart of Darkness. This includes emptied bourbon barrels from the Bruery that previously held beers such as Black Tuesday. This special edition was aged with black currants, imparting ripe, jammy notes to our awesomely dark and roasty sour Stout.

Bruery Orchard Wit
This is how a beer from our backyard in Orange County should taste: refreshing, crisp and original. Orchard Wit is a tart wheat beer, brewed with orange zest and coriander, and aged in an oak foeder for several months. It’s designed to showcase the culture of our farmhouse-style brewery through maturation in oak and fermentation with several yeast strains, namely Bavarian Wit, Belgian Wit and French Saison yeast, and our house souring culture. It’s a combination that’s fresh with subtle complexity, balancing the classic, spiced and fruity characteristics of a Belgian-style wit with the soft – and wild – touch from oak.
