Resting Place - Hoppy Mixed Fermentation Sour Ale
Hoppy sour beers have traditionally been difficult to produce as the lactic acid bacteria that gives the beer its sourness is inhibited by hops. A unique brewing yeast strain (Lachancea) has been recently been discovered, on a tree in a Philadelphia graveyard of all places, that naturally produces lactic acid during fermentation. We made this beer with Lachancea yeast, followed by a secondary fermentation with a fruity Brettanomyces strain. Hopped with new world American hops during the boil and dry hopped prior to packaging.
