According to filings with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Almanac Beer Co. will be releasing Lavender Honey de Brettaville, a 7 percent ABV farmhouse ale aged in oak barrels with lavender, honey and cara cara oranges. The new beer will be part of San Jose, Calif.-based brewery’s popular Farm to Barrel Series, which began in 2013 with Barrel Noir imperial stout (10 percent ABV) and now encompasses more than 20 different releases.
Almanac has released a number of beers under the de Brettaville moniker, including Saison de Brettaville (7.2 percent ABV), Peach de Brettaville (6.5 percent ABV) and Elephant Heart de Brettaville (6.5 percent ABV) among others.
Lavender Honey de Brettaville will be packaged in 375ml bottles, and while a release date has not been announced, the beer label does have Summer 2016 written on it.
An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
