RJB – Brettanomyces Conditioned w/ Blueberry and Cab Franc


Categories: ,


Rebecca Jungreis-Brager… called RJB, is a unique blend of golden sour ale with blueberries from the Carlsbad Flower Fields and Cabernet Franc grapes from Summer’s Vineyard in Escondido. It’s special to the brewery because it’s the first time it has made a sour ale using Brettanomyces at bottling. 

The process requires the ale to sit a little longer in the bottle, resulting in an added layer of funk to the finished product.  Finally, after resting in the bottle for approximately five months, the beer is ready to be shared. This method also allows it to age beautifully for years to come. The finished product has a soft and bright tannic character and a tropical funkiness from the late dose of the Brettanomyces yeast.
