OAK AGED FRUITED DARK ALE
We are excited to release our next limited offerings from its wood cellar, River Ridge Black and Fauxjolais, this Fall. The beers will be available in 750-mL bottles from the tasting room on October 13.
River Ridge Black is a fruited dark ale that aged in French oak for over a year with our house-mixed culture of yeast and bacteria. The beer then conditioned on top of organic black raspberries with black currants. River Ridge Black was bottle conditioned and has an ABV of 8%.
The limited release serves as a part of our Locally Grown Series (a series we use to showcase local ingredients) as we sourced the black raspberries used in the beer from a southeastern farm, River Ridge Organics.
“The team at River Ridge grow a special berry and we’re excited to be able to use their organic fruit in our beer,” said Wood Cellar and Specialty Brand Manager Blake Tyers. “All of the fruits we use in the specialty program are from small family farms. We truly believe you can taste the attention to detail and love that comes from a family in their berries.”
