For our March release we will have 3 different variations of the debut of Supercruise Tempranillo.
The first barrel was supposed to be released last month but we decided to give it a bit more time. That means this month all THREE barrels will be available at once.
Some quick notes on each one:
Barrel 1 - First part of the grape pressing, aged in a 2nd use Law's Secale Rye barrel. Bright fruitiness, a bit of perceived sweetness, some oak character.
Barrel 2 - Middle part of the grape pressing, aged in a 3rd use Law's Secale Rye barrel. More funky than 1 on the aroma, different fruit character in the taste. A bit less sweet, moderate oakines.
Barrel 3 - Last part of the grape pressing, aged in a 3rd use Leopold Bros' Cherry Whiskey barrel. More dry and tannic but also combined with more interesting fruit notes, maybe some of that cherry character from the barrel is in there. The least perceived sweetness to me (they are all actually around the same amount of residual sugar, FYI).
The color differs between these and they are really fun to drink as a "horizontal".
All 3 will be pretty limited in availability. 26oz/750mL cork and cage, $22ea (sales tax included in price). Some will be available cold for on-site consumption
We will also have a bit of Dreamland Blend 2 available for purchase. It is developing in a really great way in the bottle. Mirroring Dreamland Blend 1 in my opinion. Some of the stronger funky notes are being converted into the normal Black Project / Dreamland "house" character- Apricot, Peach, and Mango.
26oz/750mL cork and cage, $18ea (sales tax included in price). Some may be available cold for on-site consumption.
There is a chance of a very small selection of other bottles (very small amounts) being available. First come, first serve!
Of course everything in the lineup is subject to change - our beer is a living product and truly wild microbes are unpredictable.
