Product description

A collaboration with Hermit Thrush Brewery in Brattleboro, VT. Sour #9 is a perfect, pucker-inducing balance of both breweries. Gentle sour apple aromas lead the way into stone fruit, citrus and red currant before a taste bud-clenching sourness takes hold before revealing the classic, subtly sweet mysteries of #9. Wild native yeasts offer an experience steeped in Vermont’s complex terroir, the basis for all that we dream up. We exclusively use our own wild yeast and native mixed-fermentation cultures from Brattleboro, which develop our signature fruity, phunky, and tart flavors, giving our sour beers a distinctly Vermont taste you won't find anywhere else. We source much of our grain, hops, barrels, and fruits from farms located within 40 miles of our brewery to further support our taste of place. Our kettle beers are brewed using stainless steel fermenters, while our largest selection of beers reside within our barrel aging program. From smaller wine and spirit barrels to enormous foudres, our barrel aged sour beers age on average for 8 months. Frequency for our beers range from year-round rotations to seasonal and limited releases, making every trip to our tasting room different than the last.
