Motorworks Brewing (Bradenton, Florida) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Bottle Release for Therianthropy American Wild Ale on Wednesday, August 7.
Born purely out of curiosity, Therianthropy came about when the brewers at Motorworks wanted to see how the souring bacteria from La Couronne Sauvage – the brewery’s “first foray into the world of mixed culture beer” – . . . would assert itself in a small batch of Scottish Ale (the base beer for [the brewery’s] Lavender Ale that was yet to be dosed).” After inoculation and aging for several months, the beer emerged from its barrels boasting “tart, fruity flavors evocative of dried stone fruit that wonderfully complement its smooth, sweet malt base, building a flavor profile not unlike a Flanders Red Ale.”
Therianthropy will debut in Motorworks Brewing’s Taproom (1014 9th Street West | Bradenton, Florida) on August 7 and will stick around only as long as supplies last. This Limited Release offering will be available in 750ml bottles for the price of $18 each. Therianthropy is a Taproom exclusive release that will not see distribution. Prost!
