Hermitage Boysenberry American Sour – EXTREMELY LIMITED
From Hermitage “Boysenberry Sour is the very first sour project that we put together for ourselves here at Hermitage, way back in July of 2012. The base beer was actually fermented in the wood, so the beer spent its entire life inside California wine barrels. After a long, slow aging process of about two years we added hundreds of pounds of Boysenberries to the barrels and let the fruit deliciousness meld with the delicate wine-like character of the beer. The end result is a complex-yet-drinkable, pleasantly tart, fruit-forward beer that develops on the palate with every sip. Sour beer the Hermit way.”

The fifth release in the Bell’s Planets Series is strong, robust and complex. Saturn is a bourbon barrel aged barleywine loaded with notes of toffee, caramel, oak and vanilla that finishes with a warming touch. The first beer brewed for this series, Saturn has been aging in casks since July 2014. True to its name, this beer is well suited for vintage aging.

Evil Twin Soft DK – LIMITED
From the mouths of babes: “This stout looks like soft dookie and some will say it smells and tastes like it too. If you like a thick, creamy and utterly vanillalicious stout you’ll like this one. If you don’t, get yourself something else instead.”

Just like a dry white wine, a dry cider is a natural base for a kir style drink. This Cider Kir is inspired by the traditional French aperitif, but made with local New Zealand heritage variety apples and Moutere grown blackcurrants. The cidermaker extracts the blackcurrant juice using cold extraction following an old 19th century English recipe. It has a delightful sweet and acid balance and pours a deep red.
