In two days, Allagash Brewing Co. will be releasing 12-ounce bottles of a beer brewed with brettanomyces for the first time.
The first beer to get the new packaging option is Little Brett, a 4.5 percent ale that is both brewed and dry-hopped with Mosaic hops and incorporating brettanomyces. The ale is a former draft-only release that was named Session Brett when it was first sold in 2014.

According to a post on the Portland, Maine-based brewery’s Twitter page, Little Brett will be packaged in four-packs of 12-ounce bottles and will released at Allagash on May 14. Bottles will then ship to retailers in the brewery’s entire distribution footprint starting next week.
