Simcoe is a hop that almost needs no introduction. This US-born hop is big on musty, piney flavors and has long been a favorite of brewers on both coasts and everywhere in between.

These signature Simcoe flavors and aromas blend seamlessly with the fruity, funky character of our wine barrel aged sour blonde base beer, creating a complex sour ale packed with dank, lime-like aromatics and refreshing tartness.

Hoppy Sour Series

Our Farm to Barrel beers focus on the eons-old tradition of aging beers in oak casks. Each “Hoppy Sour” starts as an American blonde ale fermented with our house sour culture. After primary fermentation, the beer is racked into used wine barrels and given months to mature, allowing the beer to take on the complex flavors of the barrel and develop a refreshing, lip smacking tartness. Right before bottling, we generously dry-hop the beer with a single varietal of some of our favorite hops to create a delicious contradiction of flavor and style.
