Brewed by Upright Brewing
This bottling of four was brewed in June and aged in two pinot noir casks, each filled with over one hundred pounds of cherries. The fruit is a variety names Brooks from Baird Family Orchards that has a beautifully deep flavor and color. We decided to try an experiment and leave the stems on, and the resulting beer developed quickly with a huge tannic profile and character reminiscent of some red wines. It was not inoculated with further yeasts or bacteria, so the cherries dominate the profile and provide natural acidity. The beer is tasting bright now, but the tannins should maintain the structure and preserve it a long time. 198 bottles.
