Great Divide Brewing Company (Denver, Colorado) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Wood Werks Golden Sour Ale in April 2021.
Dropping as the latest offering to come out of Great Divide’s Wood Werks Series of Small Batch barrel-aged beers, Wood Werks Golden Sour Ale is a Farmhouse-inspired Golden Sour Ale that began as “three different Belgian-inspired . . . beers [aged] separately for a year in Pinot Noir barrels and spiked . . . with a blend of three unique souring agents.” Once the aging and souring process was completed, the beer was then “blended and left to rest directly on a bed of white grapes.” The resulting Golden Sour Ale comes in at 6% ABV and offers an experience that is “pleasantly sour with a rich, fruity bouquet of melon, grapes, pear and apricot.”
Wood Werks Golden Sour Ale is scheduled to debut in April 2021 and will hang around only as long as supplies last. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 16 oz. cans and on draft at select accounts located within Great Divide’s distribution area. Prost!
