Notes / Commercial Description:
Shortly after we started distributing, we had our cursed old brewery truck break down while carrying a load of kegs to our distributor. Our distributor was about to close for the weekend, and we had no way to get them there in time, and nowhere to store them in good condition during the opressively hot weather. As is our habit during times of stress, we sought a cold beer at the newly opened taproom and growler station around the corner, Tin Bucket. After chatting with the owner, he expressed his disappointment at not being able to get our beer. To cut it short, he and his partner bought the entire truckload, saving not just the beer, but quite literally our business.

This beer is for them. We worked with them to blend this from three different years of our lambic inspired barrels. We chose a blend with a beautiful and expressive Brett character that has only blossomed during its extended conditioning. Our favorite beer to date.
