This mixed culture ale was fermented with a blend of brettanomyces and lactobacillus to create a sour stage for showcasing Oregon native Silvan Blackberries from West Union Gardens. And what better way to show the world the glorious flavor of the Pacific Northwest’s signature fruit than to put it in the LIMElight with a generous heap of lime zest (get it - it’s a stage spotlight analogy AND the second ingredient).
A beer is a beer is a beer but this beer is a spoonful of blackberry jam.
