Stone Barrel-Aged Saison w/ Blackberry

Event Overview

Mid-week blues can be combatted with well-cared-for Stone beer! Every Tuesday we’ll tap a keg (or kegs) of a unique Stone brew outside of our year-round lineup.  Expect vintage variations of some of our favorite brews like Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine, Stone Imperial Russian Stout, or one of our other rare, special creations. We urge you to keep in mind that supplies of these highly sought-after beers are often very limited!

Stone Barrel-Aged Saison w/ Blackberry

ABV: 6.5%

Aged in red wine barrels with a whopping 17% of the total volume comprising the addition of blackberries.  We added 3 strains of Brettanomyces yeast to ensure that the fermentation finished out very dry.  Tartness from the blackberries is overt in the nose, combined with some red wine character from the barrels.  Botanicals are still there even after 7 months in the barrel, especially the lavender.  Lingering blackberry aftertaste that really makes you want another sip.  Refreshing and complex beer, ideal for summer.
