This beer started out as our traditional mixed fermentation Berliner Weisse style beer which undergoes a long secondary fermentation with Brett ‘wild’ yeast. We then added a whole lot of pineapple to the beer which builds upon the pineapple esters that the Brett already produces. The fruit sugars were fully fermented out to maintain the dryness of the base beer. Combined with a high carbonation level, this is a very spritzy and refreshing beer.

Drop It Slow - BA Fruited Sour - One Drop Collab

A collaboration between two Botany neighbours that's been over a year in the making. Produced using a combination of new world and old world brewing techniques. We brewed this beer at One Drop before transporting it down the street to Slow Lane where it was racked to oak barrels to age with Brettanomyces. After 10 months and a whole lot of mango being added, we bottled it and laid it down for a further 5 months bottle conditioning. It was well worth the slow drop, with the end product being the ideal combo of sour, fruit and funk.
