Ale Aged in Oak w/ Syrah Grapes

8.6% ABV

$25 - 750mL Bottle


- Macerated on crushed + destemmed Syrah grapes for 30 days before separation and aging in a single 500 L French Oak cask. An excited palate of strawberry preserves, seedy tannin, overripe blackberry and black tea playfully evolve into a rich bed of warm orange and clove. Bottled near still, enjoy at cellar temp or near 50*F. 

 **This will be the first bottle released 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.
