Victory Brewing Company (Downingtown, Pennsylvania) announced this week that Sour Monkey Sour Brett Tripel is returning to craft beer shelves this month.
It may be the sister beer to the Victory Brewing staple Golden Monkey Belgian-style Tripel, but Sour Monkey Sour Brett Tripel has certainly made a name for itself since it debuted back in 2015. This offering starts with that Tripel base of whole flower hops, Pilsner malts and coriander, and even gets a primary fermentation with the Westmalle yeast strain that is so present and beloved in Golden Monkey. Sour Monkey then sees a secondary fermentation with brettanomyces and other “non-standard yeast varieties” to achieve its sharp tart note and signature funkiness. This offering comes together as a 9.5% ABV ale that is sure to challenge and delight your palate with each sip taken.
Sour Monkey is available for a limited time in 750 ml bottles for the suggested retail price of $9 (price may vary upon location). Look for this offering to turn up any day now at select craft beer-friendly establishments in Alabama, Florida and throughout Victory’s 37 state distribution area. Sour Ales are ridiculously popular right now, so be sure to snag yourself a bottle of Sour Monkey before it disappears with a quickness. Prost!
