Death and the Miser (2023)
Walk among this altar. Take from it what you need. It shall be here when you seek it. With nothing left to behold. The Altar of Acid is our newest series, focused on our 7 most epic barrel-aged sour ales, wrapped meticulously to adorn a most beautiful story. Each year we push a new boundary with our beloved cherry sour ale, and the aging of our wood cellar enabled a new level this year. This is the second year where we have embraced our newfound passion for nouveau-style ales, in releasing the beer just a couple of months after fruiting. A blend of mostly 1-year-old red sour ales each aging in different red wine barrels makes up the base. After blending, the cuvee was re-fermented upon a mix of Michigan-grown Balaton and Montmorency cherries. This year’s mix is a parfait of spiced cherry jam, cinnamon rolls, swirls of young Barbaresco and cherry handpie.
