Wandering into a serendipitous meeting in Boonville led to the forging of a relationship between City Beer Store and The Bruery and a beer collaboration worth celebrating. Cheers to five years! Suitable for aging up to five years if cellared around 55F (13C). Ideal serving temperature is 50F (10C). Please pour carefully, leaving the sediment behind in the bottle. Best served in a tuilp or wine glass.

Shared bottle with Timfoolery at City Beer in San Francisco. This was cherries and raspberries all the way. It was a solid brew, but not as sour as I was expecting.

Most likely my favorite beer of the Bottle Share. Such a great sour. Flavors and aromas of wonderful acidic sourness. I would love to get more of this one.
