Our Emily’s Dream series is an opportunity to explore the depths of flavor a beer can become. Like the most interesting dreams, you don’t know what may become, but you’re excited for the journey. For our 4th Anniversary, we departed from the norm on our typical kettle-sour process. After brewing Night Falls in early 2017, we did a second runnings to grab the fermentable wort used to create Emily’s Dream #11. We then fermented the beer in barrels with yeast and a whole lot of souring goodness.
Such a long barrel maturation lends a depth and complexity unlike any sour we’ve ever done. It’s funky. It’s tart. And there’s big ole’ oaky finish worthy of the Woodsmen from the story that inspired the bottle art. We added a grip of blackberries at the end for the unexpected twist that makes the best dreams worth having.
Enjoy it now or let this dream hang out in your cellar to see what it becomes.
Cheers to 4 years. And thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
