A fresh *new* beer is available this Friday!
Deadhead is the first beer in our new “Boxcar Barrel Series.” It’s a fruited barrel sour inspired by our Cider Fresca Plum cider. The idea for this American Sour came about after we made a plum cider last fall and had a few leftover yellow and red plums.
The plums from our farms in New York are very sweet, and the addition of them to our barrels led to a secondary sour fermentation that resulted in a flavorful, slightly funky 6.3% abv beer. With its reddish hue of plums, this crisp sour is the appropriate accompaniment to Houston’s dog days of summer.
