BEHIND THE CURTAIN

ABOUT THE BEER:
Behind the Curtain
Flanders Style Red Ale Aged in Red Wine Barrels
5.8% ABV

DESCRIPTION:
Community & Craftsmanship are core ethos driving Council Brewing and are exhibited through this beer. We chose to blend this beer in conjunction with a handful of patrons who all had their input on the final blend in a special blending experience. We named it Behind the Curtain because we peeled back the curtain of the Magic Factory for a unique evening of hands on education about brewing and blending sour beers with the Council Brewing team. This is a blend of beer aged for one to two years in 6 red wine barrels. This beer strikes a balance between the Lickable Staves (2017 SD International Best of Show Winner) and the 2nd Anniversary Flanders Style Red Ale (Silver - 2017 LA International) and exhibits tart cherry pie and leather from the long aging as well as caramel dried currants, and bright acidity.

Blended by the Council Brew Team and and participants in our first Barrel Blending Experience session.
