The fourth and final beer in Harmony Brewing Company’s popular wood aged sour beer program will be released on Wednesday November 2nd. The “Old Spot” sour black saison will be sold in wax dipped, serialized 750 ml bottles.
“Old Spot” is a rich black saison ale that was aged in a blend of mead and bourbon barrels. Each barrel was inoculated with our proprietary blend of wild souring agents. Over the course of the summer, a wide range of flavors developed. The blending of the barrels created a deeply complex beer with notes of vanilla bean, spiced rum, roasted malts, and tootsie pops.
The bottle release will happen as part of Harmony’s inaugural beer geek-out event, “The Peculiar Pint.” The Peculiar Pint will take place on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month from 7-10pm, and will be a gathering place for people who aren’t ashamed to go full on beer nerd. Hosted by Ben Isbell, Harmony’s head brewer, each event will provide a strange brew as a central focal point. On November 2nd, the focus will be on “Old Spot” and the sour barrel brewing process. Guests will have a chance to taste the individual flavors of the different sour barrels that made up “Old Spot” alongside the blended final product. Brewers will be on hand to give in depth technical information about the burgeoning craft of sour beer creation.
These bottles of “Old Spot” are extremely limited! The first three beers in this series sold out in bottles within 24 hours.
