PICTON, ON – Parsons Brewing has announced release of this year’s vintage of a beer-wine hybrid made using grapes from the brewery’s own vineyard.
Sunkissed Grape Ale (7.5% abv) is described as follows:
Sunkissed is cloudy by nature with a tart open, a subtle juiciness & lingering hints of crisp orchard fruit. Our small vineyard consists of 500 vines – Pinot Noir & Chardonnay. Upon harvest, the grape juice is blended with a golden ale and fermented together with Saison yeast and copious amounts of Pinot Noir skins. The result is something very unique – a highly effervescent hybrid that is 30% wine and 70% beer.
The 2019 edition of Sunkissed is available now in 750 ml bottles at the Parsons brewery store and online shop while supplies last.
