MONSTERS’ PARK AGED IN SPANISH BRANDY BARRELS – VINTAGE 2017
This is Monsters’ Park, our hulking, cantankerous imperial stout, aged in Spanish brandy barrels, which begin their life as sherry casks. The fruit-forward barrel character is immediately evident on the nose and only grows more intense in the flavor. Big, thunderous notes of burnt caramel, raisins, & marshmallows add a crazy dimension to this sledgehammer of sabor, combining with the massive roast character of Monsters’ Park to create a wildly complex & delicious beer.
MONSTERS’ PARK AGED IN SPANISH BRANDY BARRELS W/ FIG & COCOA
We loaded this batch of Spanish brandy barrel-aged radness with figs and cocoa nibs, which combine with the fruit-forward character of the barrels in a miraculous fireworks display of delicious complexity, pushing the massive, roast character of Monsters’ Park into a hitherto unexplored frontier of comestible pleasure.
PALACE OF CRACKED HEADS – VINTAGE 2017
For Palace of Cracked Heads, we loaded over two pounds per barrel of local, heirloom nectarines into our red wine barrel-aged Oud Bruin. After months of mingling in the barrel, the resulting beer is a powerfully fruity sour with loads of nectarine flavor & aroma. Fermentation began with our house Lomaland yeast culture, but the robust sourness is the result of a secondary mixed fermentation of lactobacillus and pediococcus. Several different strains of brettanomyces add a funky, earthy wildness to this very flavorful sour.
This magnificent beverage has one foot in modern experimentation and another in the ancient world. We let a portion of this lovely, blended saison age for two months in an amphora, a type of large clay vessel used for winemaking since the Neolithic Age and recently popular with an adventurous cadre of natural winemakers. It was then blended with it’s red wine barrel-aged counterpart, resulting in a complex-yet-insanely-drinkable marvel, with plenty of farmhouse funk, light citrus acidity, and an extremely pleasant minerality from the time spent in its clay housing. It’s a delightful marriage of progress and history that we think you’re really going to enjoy putting in your face.
This triumphantly unique hoppy sour was kettle-soured and loaded with Horizon, Citra, and Mosaic hops before 100% Brett fermentation and a luxurious dry-hopping with the aforementioned lineup of lupulin bombs. The resulting beverage is an exhilarating journey of tart, tropical complexity that is intriguing, quenching, and outrageously delicious. Pour some into a tulip glass, relax your mind, and prepare to be delivered into a dimension of unrestrained pleasure.
