Intinction – Sauvignon Blanc

Although we have made this beer once before, it was only available on our guided tour and for special events.  The base beer is a Pilsner aged in Sauvignon Blanc barrels with the addition of Sauvignon Blanc grape juice from the 2018 harvest for a secondary fermentation.  The juice and barrels are from Dutton Vineyards in the Russian River wine appellation here in Sonoma County.  There is no lactobacillus or pediococcus added to the beer, only brettanomyces.  The tart acidity comes from the wine grapes.  This beer is delicate and beautifully balanced, a perfect refresher on a warm summer day!
