Special release for the 2011 Craft Brewers Conference in San Francisco. This sour brown ale was made by Russian River with Sierra Nevada, using the latter’s Keller Weise yeast for the primary fermentation, and barrel aged with Russian River’s house “bugs and critters” in wine barrels from Fritz Maytag’s York Creek Vineyards.

    a nice surprise at Craft Reno's 1st AV party. Mellow for Russian River, but distictly there's. Tart, lactic sour, slightly vinous & acidic on the palate in just the right way, but easy drinking and refreshing. This makes a great intro to the style and is good enough for the snobs as well.
