Wine Grapes and Sour Beer … Best Friends
Join us this Friday, November 12, as we tap four new wine grape sours in honor of San Diego Beer Week. We are absolutely obsessed with our Wine Grape Sours, and we are excited to share them with the craft beer community.
We will feature four wine grape sour ales.
Viognier (“Vee-on-yeah”) Piquette
Viognier grape hast the scent of Honeysuckle and Jasmine and the rich flavors of Apricot and Peach. Ripening in warm sunshine, this beer is quite heady and exotic with spicy undertones of Gingerbread and plenty of body.
Petite Sirah Wild Ale
Petite Sirah grape has a deep color violet color and bold tannins. Fruit is the dominant flavor, with Plum and Blueberry being the most distinct. Additional flavors are Dark Chocolate, Pepper, and Black Tea.
Ongemang (“On-Je-Mang”) – Wine Grape Blend
The word Ongemang comes from Old English, which combines “in” and “mingling.” It has been described as “Exploring the spaces in between.” We felt like this was the perfect expression to represent our first blended wine grape sour made with a blend of Petite Sirah and Viognier grapes.
Echoes of Muscat
Echoes of Muscat Wild Ale are made in with fermented Muscat grape pomace that we got from our friends at Charlie Echo Wine. These grapes have a musky aroma, sweet, honeyed flavor, and rich fruit and floral notes.
This is going to be an excellent introduction to the world of wine-grape sours. Please join us at either our Sorrento Valley or Ocean Beach location to experience the Grapes of Wrath.
