Event Details

Join us at the Blue Mountain Barrel House for our 2021 Raspberries on Acid beer release!
2021 RASPBERRIES ON ACID
An imperial witbier brewed with oats, wheat, barley malt, orange peel, and coriander, then soured in the kettle with lactobacillus bacteria. Light hopping and fermentation with traditional witbier ale yeast result in a bigger-than-normal, pleasantly sour wheat ale. To get a little funkier, we then rack this beer to a fleet of red wine barrels from local vineyard Thatch Winery on top of one pound of raspberry puree per gallon of beer. This jammy raspberry explosion of a beverage remains one of our most anticipated seasonal releases each year.
We will also be featuring the release of two new exciting variants:
BLUEBERRIES ON ACID
Like the original, this variation on the Raspberries on Acid is also an imperial witbier brewed with oats, barley malt, orange peel and coriander, soured in the kettle with lactobacillus bacteria, and complemented with light hopping for a bigger-than-normal and pleasantly sour wheat ale. But we’ve gone to the other end of the berry spectrum and aged the beer with one pound per gallon of blueberries in red wine barrels from Thatch Winery. A flipside juicy explosion of a beer to mirror the original, enjoy this once-a-year seasonal rarity.
KEY LIME ON ACID
Like the original, this variation on the Raspberries on Acid is also an imperial witbier brewed with oats, barley malt, orange peel and coriander, soured in the kettle with lactobacillus bacteria, and complemented with light hopping for a bigger-than-normal and pleasantly sour wheat ale. For a creative second variant to this year’s batch, we’ve forgone the raspberries in a few barrels and aged a portion of this brew with the flavors that have made Florida’s famed Key Lime Pie a culinary classic.
