The “Old Time” series is a collaboration with The Charleston Beer Exchange. The base beer (a Belgian-style strong dark ale) for all four Old Times was originally brewed in July 2011, then aged in a variety of oak barrels, some with and some without a blend of brettanomyces, lactobacillus, and pediococcus.

Funky Old Time was aged for 18 months in two American oak red wine barrels with wild yeast/brewing bacteria.

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Deep ruby pour with no head. This looks like red wine – no varietal or region in particular. The nose offers a mélange of white oak funkiness accompanied by cherry and grape Kool-Aid fruitiness. Medium-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor furnishes tart, fruity, purple grapes, black cherries, woodiness and a mild measure of tannic bitterness. Fruity, Sweet-Tart aftertaste. Kudos to ctipping for sharing this gem!

TheAlum (6942) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle at Tony/Jim BA Birthday Extravaganza 2013 (Western Springs, IL). Pours a darker ruby brown hue, a darker murky well hazed hue settles in, showing some faded subtle glow in the body, red and brown with a touch more life to the edges. Small frothy tan head dies to a small ring, laces small. Aromas are sour cherries and firmer red wine tannins, gentle funk, oak, vanilla. The funkiness starts to come in a bit more, a bit vinous and balsamic. Develops well compared to the Brandy sour. Initial mirrors what it’s offering, a firmer lactic sourness meets tannic red wine, Sour cherries and tannic barrel, touches of mellow body show biscuit, but largely mellowed out. The wild yeast gives a firmer balsamic and sour cherry, lactic sourness as we press on. A touch acidic but in an enjoyable way. Backend is where the red wine element takes off a bit more. Dry, red wine, tannic feel starts to coat the palate, a synergy feel with the sourness, still firm but even keeled. Finish is touches of mellow sweetness, lingering lactic elements and a firmer barrel presence. Really nice step and a considerable step up from the Grumpy version.
