Beercraft, our Host for the night, has scheduled The Rare Barrel for an Exclusive Sonoma Bereocrats Meeting from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. From 6:30pm to 8pm Beercraft will be open to the public for more tasting. We are welcome to stay for this extended tasting time.
Come and meet The Rare Barrel,
Jay Goodwin, Brewer
Jay has been interested in craft beer since college. After graduating, Jay was lucky enough to be hired as a brewer at a six-month old brewery in Orange County. Three and a half years later, The Bruery has now made Rate Beer's list of best brewers in the World four times, and is a winner of medals at the Great American Beer Festival and the World Beer Cup.
Here are the 4 sour beers that Rare Barrel has ready now. Originally they were bringing 2 kegs of beer for the event. Now they are bringing growlers of the other 2 just for us!
SKUs Me | Golden Sour Beer Aged In Oak Barrels | 5.3%
"SKUs me, is there any room on this shelf for another new brewery? There is? Great!!" SKUs Me, which is our very first blend, was fermented with Brettanomyces yeast and Lactobacillus bacteria and aged in oak barrels. This moderately tart golden sour beer has notes of lemon zest and hay.
Ensorcelled | Dark Sour Beer Aged In Oak Barrels With Raspberries | 5.8%
Ensorcelled is a blend of our oak-aged red sour beer and oak-aged black Brettanomyces beer. After blending our red and black sours together, we added raspberries and let the beer age in barrels for a few more months.
Shadows of Their Eyes | Dark Sour Beer Aged In Oak Barrels | 5.6%
Shadows of Their Eyes is a dark sour beer fermented with Brettanomyces yeast and Lactobacillus bacteria and aged in oak barrels. Aromas of chocolate complement the dark fruit notes in this assertively sour beer.
Proportional Response | Amber Sour Beer Aged In Oak Barrels | 4.8%
Proportional Response, a balanced amber sour beer, is a blend of our mouth-puckering red sour beer and our faintly tart pale sour beer. The result of this blend is well-balanced amber sour beer with moderate tartness and hints of cherries and grapefruit.
