CELEBRATING THE CROP WITH RIVER RIDGE RED
River Ridge Red is an ale (6.6%) aged in oak barrels with organic red raspberries from Independence, VA's River Ridge Organics.
This beer is a celebration of the crop from their farm. We selected the best blend of barrels to honor the complex flavor of the red raspberries featured in the beer. Once we blended beer onto the fresh raspberries, we performed punchdowns for two weeks, and then continued to macerate on the fruit for more than 6 months. The extended time allows the acids from the fruit to round out and mellow, leaving a soft and honest red raspberry flavor. As with all of our beers from our wood cellar, we have worked diligently to have a balanced acid profile that compliments the fruit River Ridge farms have worked so hard to grow.
