Bruery Terreux (Orange County, California) has officially announced that it will release Wit The Funk, the brewery’s first foeder-aged beer available in cans, in early February 2019.
Developed to be as traditional and accessible as possible, Wit The Funk is a classic Witbier – “brewed with coriander, orange peel and traditional Belgian Wit yeast” – that has been aged in “American and French oak foeders, with Terreux house culture, Brettanomyces and other yeasts, until final maturation.” Once its rest is completed, Wit The Funk (5.4% ABV) rises to offer “a winning combination that’s fresh with subtle complexity – balancing the classic, spiced and fruity characteristics of a Belgian-style wit with the soft – and wild – touch from its time in the oak.”
“We are really excited to have our first foeder aged beer in cans. This beer has a very complex yeast character for the more experienced beer connoisseur and an approachable level of tartness for those who are new to sour beer. At Terreux, we strive hard to produce palate provoking sour ales without the use of kettle souring. It’s our passion for old world traditions and the complexity of old world sour and wild ales that inspire us to work with wild yeast and bacteria to create a live product that truly is an expression of The Bruery’s commitment to quality craftsmanship.”
– Jeremy Grinkey, The Bruery’s Senior Production Manager
Wit The Funk will officially begin rolling out in early February with availability in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans. You can expect to find this new Year-Round offering at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in Florida, California and throughout the rest of The Bruery/Bruery Terreux’s distribution network. Prost!
