The most fruit-forward mixed culture beer we've ever released. Like biting into a peach so lush the juice runs down your hands.

This release is second in a pair of bicoastal beauties that highlight the importance of ingredient sourcing and whole fruit terroir on long-aged beer, made with our friends The Rare Barrel. Both beers began as a single batch of saison aged in wine barrels with RB's house culture, which magically coaxes out flavors that meld seamlessly with stone fruit. We divided the batch of saison in two and re-fermented each half on peak-season fruit sourced from farms on each coast. 

Relative to the West Coast edition, released in May, we went full-out peach when it came time to rep the East. Whereas the first SoT release had more mixed culture character, acidity, and integrated fruit flavor, this one's in-your-face: lush, elegant and bursting with tree-ripened, fresh peach character. 

The Rare Barrel brews primarily mixed culture fruited beers; look out for two of their finer bottle offerings coming to the shop this month.
