Notes/Commercial Description:
This barrel-aged wild ale is named for our San Francisco neighborhood and pays tribute to the Flanders Red style of beer. Aged in wine barrels, this lightly tart ale is brewed with California Rainier cherries using a house blend of wild yeasts, bacteria and SF sourdough yeast. Pair this complex ale with ripe figs & blue cheese or seafood bouillabaisse.

A big thanks to Jeff for this one. Into Hill Farmstead stemware.

A clear copper brew. Nose is subtle but the flavor is incredibly tart, acidic and delicious. Notes of tart cherry, oak, plastic and vinegar. The sour never really lets up. Feel carries the flavor perfectly. Aggressive, crisp and finishes puckering. Certainly worth having.
