Yazoo Brewing Company (Madison, Tennessee) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Never Say Never Again, the latest Sour Ale project from the brewery’s Embrace the Funk program, on May 1.
Crafted to be the long-awaited sequel project to the “challenging” 2015 release that Embrace the Funk brewers expected to never make again (cleverly named Never Again at the time), Never Say Never Again is a sour Belgian Strong Dark Ale “aged in Sherry casks before a double barrel extended rest in Port, Bourbon, Merlot and [Tennessee] Whiskey barrels.” Never Say Never Again is best enjoyed at 55°F.
“Many of you know the crazy story behind what became ‘Never Again’ in 2015. It still remains one of the most asked questions ‘Will you or can you make that beer again?’ I usually answered with ‘Well we did put Never Again on the label.’ But a good challenge is fun. So in 2017 I set out to attempt a sequel version of the final beer (minus the leaky barrels, pallets falling over etc…). Double barrel aging everything before this final blend sure brought back some memories! I believe I was able to capture the overall character of the original in this batch.”
– Brandon Jones, Head Funkmaster & Brewer for Yazoo’s Embrace the Funk program
