Sauvignon Blanc Barrel aged fruited sour blonde
Bleu Mures acquires its hue and flavor through the delicate contributions of French oak, whole blueberries, and blackberries. This second batch has its foundation further enhanced through the subtleties of Sauvignon Blanc, drawn from the oak in which it was once stored. A pleasantly tart acidity balances with sweet berry overtones to offer a crisp, refreshing wild ale.

Barrel Roll Series
Adventures in Vintage
The process of creating barrel-aged beers is equal parts craftsmanship and science, an art that is both immensely time-consuming and intensely rewarding for us as brewers. We purchased our first barrel in 2010, a bourbon barrel, and it turned 53 gallons of Chocolate Porter into our first ever batch of Barrel Roll #1 - Immelmann. Wine barrel aged sour beers followed soon after in 2012 with Barrel Roll #5 - Chandelle. Our sour ales develop in complexity over the course of up to three years in oak barrels, fermented by wild yeast and souring bacteria. The range of aging coupled with countless variables from barrel type to fermentation behavior, allows us to create truly unique beers each year, making each vintage its own adventure.
