Fortunatus releases from the brewery for the first time in bottles Saturday, April 29th.
Bottled in 2016 and left to cellar until ready, Fortunatus is a mixed fermentation sour ale. We used a strain of lactobacillus and our house Belgian yeast for primary fermentation and then further enhanced the funk character by adding Brettanomyces and aging in previously used oak barrels.
Bottle conditioned and cellared since 2016, Fortunatus is our most sour ale to date and ready for you to pick up at the brewery. Special tour of $10 includes a 375ml cork and caged bottle with a limit of 5 per guest. This is not a ticketed event and availability will be on a first come basis.
Standard tasting tour is optional and $14 as usual. Special beers being poured for this release include Fortunatus, Inceptus, Brettanicus, and a brand new red wine barrel-aged Saison with Norwegian yeast and Brett, Saison Voss Kveik.
Crafted with a dedication to patience and the time required for this beer to be ready, we are more than excited to see another beer from our Funk Yard enter the market. Hope to see you on the 29th.
