    Had a pour yesterday when picking up bottles. Standard TRB style sharp lacto base w/ very juicy fruit characteristic. Seems like the currants were lapping the blackberries.

    just once, the "Blend" on RB bottles is just the overall number of batches of beer they have bottled in total. SKU's Me was #1, and Home Sour was #2.

    Looks like there is a huge chance:

    The Bruery's Copperversary - Our friends at The Bruery are celebrating their 7th Anniversary this Saturday! Come say hi and enjoy one of the four beers we'll be pouring at their party, if you're joining them on this special day.

    Only 2 beers are listed that they are bringing so I'd say safe to assume one of them will be Another World. I wonder what the other one will be.....?

    Rare Barrel needs to stop it with this madness. I still haven't gone in to purchase Forces Unseen yet...and now THIS?!?!? Credit card company is gonna love me this month.
     
  12. Nisfornike

    Nisfornike Apr 5, 2013 California

    Ensorcelled and Home, Sour Home are the two beers if people are interested.

    My guess is forces unseen and another world

    With that lineup it's not hard to guess the most popular brewery of the event :wink: I could drink Forces all day :slight_smile:

    If Another World is a "Red Sour" does that mean it is a Flanders Red?
    What makes it red? What is the base (unless it IS the base)
    #noobquestion
     
  16. funbutt88

    funbutt88 May 22, 2006 California

    The base beer is red. They actually make 3 base beers(blond, red, dark). Flanders reds tend to have other types of bacteria in them than the ones that Rare Barrel uses.

    I know Forces had some pedio. But mostly brett+lacto

    I am running tight on funds, may only buy one Another World.

    Also, is that a new batch of Home, Sour Home? The first batch was unreal fresh but someone told me by November the vanilla was taking over?

    Had a bottle of the first batch a couple months ago, and only the cinnamon had really remained.

    It will be a fresh batch of Home, Sour Home. It has/is being bottled.

    The home sour home is perfection. This year's batch at the bruery party. Jay said they brought down the cinnamon level so it's super balanced. Best beer at the event. Supermassive by the bottle was right behind it. Amazing beers coming out from them. They are so dialed in

    Glad to hear it. No pours of Another World today?
     
  27. clayfu

    clayfu Apr 27, 2010 California

    No another world. Also poured 2014 map of the sun which was drinking nicely. More subdued but apricot was still there.

    Ensorcelled was a touch too acidic off tap

    I wasn't that impressed with HSH, it wasn't much better that Sourrento. Definitely not worth any wait at the fest. Ensorcelled was very good though.

    I couldn't be bothered with the Rare Barrel line. It isn't like they had something that wasn't coming in bottles.

    Home, Sour Home was killer on tap at the Bruery party yesterday. One of my top 3 beers at the event. The balance of cinnamon and vanilla was on point. That line was insane though. HSH kicked around 1:20 so unlikely anyone coming in under an RS ticket was able to get a pour.

    Looking forward to the bottles. The cinnamon was way too much for me last year, but most of my friends loved it.
     
  32. clayfu

    clayfu Apr 27, 2010 California

    Jay said they toned down the cinnamon in this batch. Like Sourdog said it was perfectly balanced. It was probably the best beer I had at the Bruery party.

    Has anyone tried this? I'm sort of on the fence.
     
  36. JayPeso

    JayPeso Oct 25, 2013 California

    Was on the fence as well, but only about the quantity I should buy. I've had no problem blindly spending for their $30 beers so at $18 each, I picked up 9...but I think it was partly due to my regret of not maxing out on Forces. Saw a random tick on untappd with 5 out of 5 bottle caps if that makes it easier.

    Agreed. I thought it had a touch of horchata quality but it was definitely a sour with excellent balance.
