Press Release

Seattle, WA, September 13 - On Thursday, September 28th, Brother Barrel will be hosting its first special event: Pucker Up: Washington. Washington-made sour beer and cider will be taking over the taps all day as part of a release party for Elliott Bay's new barrel-aged sour Ambrosia Kriek. In addition, the talented kitchen staff at Brother Barrel will be providing a special menu for the night.

Guests will be able or order 2, 4, or 8 oz pours of four different Elliott Bay sours: Chucked Berries, Westland Barrel-Aged Sour Porter, Sour Wheat, and our brand new release, Ambrosia Kriek. In addition, delicious sour beers and ciders will be on tap from Bainbridge Island Brewing, Dragonhead Ciders, Engine House #9, Finnriver Cider, Holy Mountain, Lucky Envelope, Reuben's Brews, Snowdrift Cider, Schooner Exact, Urban Family Brewing, and Wander Brewing.

Ambrosia Kriek, a Flemish red style sour beer, was aged for 10 months. We added Montmorency Cherries and Red Raspberries and then refermented in the barrels for another 5 months. The beer is ruby red with aromas of fresh raspberries and tart cherries. It has a strong acidity that is balanced by the oak and fresh fruit additions.
