TORONTO, ON – Bellwoods Brewery has announced the release of the latest in its Vines series of barrel aged wild beer with grapes.
Vines No. 3 (7.2% abv) is described as follows:
No. 3 uses post-fermentation Vidal grapes — after 30 days of skin contact at Southbrook Winery — as a wild yeast source. For Southbrook, the grapes go on to become their Orange Wine, for us the skins provide enough microorganisms to inoculate our wort. What has emerged, after 10 months aging in oak and a nice bottle conditioning, is a dry, Saison-esque beer with peppery notes, and hints of white grape.
Vines No. 3 is available now at both Bellwoods retail stores and the brewery’s online shop while supplies last.
