Ale Aged in Oak w/ Cabernet Sauvignon Grapes - 7.8% ABV 
- Macerated on foot-stomped Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from Campo Creek for 30 days before separation and aging in a single 500 L French Oak cask.
Notions of youth and vibrancy -underripe strawberries, pear brandy, and leather provide complexity to a modest acidity and roundness.
Bottled near still, enjoy slightly chilled or near 44*F. 

 **This will be a part of a mix pack bottle release in a series of 5!!!!

 Each year, we are blessed with opportunities to work directly with San Diego growers & wine-makers to procure local grapes. In less than 3 hours from harvest, our grapes are processed and introduced to a meticulously constructed blend of young & old mixed-fermentation ales from our oak-aging program. A short maceration (20 - 30 days) allows refermentation and color-extraction to occur, producing a blurring vision of where beer and wine co-exist. 

 In the 2019 vintage, we were able to bring in whole-cluster Syrah (Campo Creek), Malbec (Emerald Creek), and Cabernet Sauvignon (from both vineyards). A large blend was designed to macerate all 5 varieties, thus creating a perspective of singular expression and shared influence.
