COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Grizz is back in this Limited Edition barrel aged release. Refermented in the barrel with local nectarines, the intense maltiness of The Grizz serves as a delivery vehicle for the essence of the fruit, balanced by bright nectarine acid & tannins and the earthy sour character of the native micro flora & fauna of Dry Creek Valley.
