SOUR WENCH

Ale with blackberries aged in chardonnay & sauvignon barrels

Blackberry + White Peach +
Citrus + Vanilla

SCROLL

White Wine Barrel Aged

After resting in both chardonnay and sauvignon blanc barrels for over six months, our Sour Wench emerges with aromas of freshly sliced white peach, citrus, woody oak tannins and rich vanilla. Within every sip you’ll taste hints of crushed berries and ripe apricots with a deliciously buttery smoothness from the chardonnay barrels, while finishing dry from the sauvignon blanc on the back. Easy-drinking for a barrel-aged beer, it’s tart, refreshing, and delightfully smooth.

TRADE STREET COLLECTION

White Wine Barrel-Aged Sour Wench marks the first release from our Trade Street Collection. After years of exploring a variety of oak barrels and beer styles, we’ve decided to bottle a few of our favorites. Named as an homage to the site of our barrel-aging cellar, Trade St. Collection celebrates the deep and

distinctive flavors that emerge from oak casks. Oak imparts notes of caramel, vanilla, smoke, and spice, while natural evaporation intensifies every flavor. Our Trade St. Collection bottles are suited to enjoy today, store away, or trade with fellow beer aficionados.

Started in 1996 by a small group of homebrewers in San Diego, we’ve enjoyed over
