Central City Unveils Sour Brown I Barrel-Aged Sour Ale Bottles

Sour Brown I Barrel-Aged Sour Ale
Central City Brewers unveils a new Belgian-style Sour Brown I Barrel-Aged Sour Ale in 750ml bottles. This brew has been aged for two years in Cabernet Sauvignon oak barrels and French oak foeders. Bottles will be available along the west coast of the US as well as Canada.
More from the press release:

Central City’s Sour Brown (9.2% ABV) is a traditional Belgian style sour brown ale. Its flavour is malty sweet with a balanced acidic finish with barnyard hay notes.

“We decided on a sour beer program when this brewery was first designed because we feel that sour beer is a relevant style for a craft brewery,” says Gary Lohin, Central City’s renowned Brewmaster. “We decided to use the Belgian method of souring the beers since it is the birthplace of this style, and used various yeast cultures to produce the unique and notable flavours, and aged them for two years in the Cabernet Sauvignon oak barrels and French oak foeders. The result is a complex flavour that balances the sour notes with a melodic malty character.”

Central City is unveiling their Sour Brown I Barrel-Aged Sour Ale at the inaugural launch on Thursday, January 14 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Central City on Beatty Restaurant (871 Beatty Street, Vancouver).
