Good People Brewing introduces Sour Ale Program

gp_2014_m2Good People Brewing Company (Birmingham, Alabama) announced this week that they are nearly ready to introduce their fans to a new Sour Ale program dubbed Funk Farm.

After nearly a year of development, Good People Brewing is set launch a series of mixed fermentation Sour Ales thanks to the Funk Farm brewing program.  These ales will be created by way of experimentation with wild yeast strains and non-traditional microbes.  Funk Farm offerings will range from small-batch, limited releases to (eventually) regularly available Sours.  Beers in this series will be packaged in 750 ml bottles and available for purchase at the brewery only.

“We’ve been interested in sour beers and developing new beers for a couple years now. The Funk Farm series showcases the creativity and innovation of our brewers. Through experimentation, we want to explore the art of aged, mixed-fermentation sour beers,” says Jason Malone, Co-Founder and Brewmaster at Good People Brewing.

The first release from the Funk Farm will be a Sour Blonde Ale with Raspberries & Blackberries added that was aged in French oak red wine barrels for 8 months.  This offering will be officially available on Saturday, September 24th at a release party to be held at the Good People taproom (114 14th St South, Birmingham).  More information is sure to come, so stay tuned for updates.  Prost!
