Scires Ale Brewed With Cherries – Limited


Scires – Vintage 2006

Sour Cherry Beer | 7% ABV

$24.99  |  750ml

Tasting Notes:

Dark red with little to no head.

Sweet dark cherries, ripened under the warm Italian sun, meet a blend of sour beers, one old, the other young. When you drink Scires, let your creativity wander for Scires is a style of its own.

Tart with tons of cherry flavor.

Nice light tartness.

Almanac Beer Co. Dogpatch Sour

Almanac Beer Co.  |  Saison de Brettaville  |  American Wild Ale  |  7.5% ABV  |  $10.99  |  375ml

     This barrel-aged wild ale is named for our San Francisco neighborhood and pays tribute to the Flanders Red style of beer. Aged in wine barrels, this lightly tart ale is brewed with California Rainier cherries using a house blend of wild yeasts, bacteria and SF sourdough yeast. Pair this complex ale with ripe figs & blue cheese or seafood bouillabaisse.

Almanac Beer Co. Saison de Brettaville

Almanac Beer Co.  |  Saison de Brettaville  |  Saison / Farmhouse Ale  |  7.2% ABV  |  $10.99  |  375ml

     We love Brettanomyces! This wild yeast, also known as “Brett,” brings out a wide range of flavors and aromas in beer, from exotic fruits to earthy funk. We added a dozen different Brett strains to our dry-hopped Saison Dolores, then aged it in white wine barrels for several months. The result is an intricate farmhouse ale with the kind of nuance and depth that only Brett can create. Serve alongside soft funky cheeses or as a tangy counterpoint to rich charcuterie.

Almanac Beer Co. Farmer’s Reserve Citrus

Almanac Beer Co.  |  Farmer’s Reserve Citrus  |  American Wild Ale  |  7% ABV  |  $10.99  |  375ml

Citrus and beer have made a great pair ever since the first lemon wedge was added to a frosty wheat beer. Here we expand on that tradition, melding a sour blond ale with the intensely aromatic zest of Buddha’s Hand citrons and the bracing tartness of Yuzu and Blood Oranges from Hamada Farms. Pair harmoniously with sushi or flakey white fish or contrast with earthy roasted root vegetables.
