This weekend, American Solera and Field Recordings Winery are releasing two collaboration beers with very intersting backstories.
As the names suggest, Bière De Picpoul is a 7 percent ABV oak-aged ale conditioned on Picpoul wine grapes while Bière De Zinfandel is a 10 percent ABV oak-aged ale conditioned on Zinfandel wine grapes.
The collaborations are a result of a road trip from California’s central coast, where owner Andrew Jones “loaded up on grapes” grown at his Paso Robles-based winery and drove them back to American Solera in Tulsa.
According to a post on American Solera’s Facebook page, Bière De Picpoul is packaged in 375ml bottles ($14) with 170 cases available while Bière De Zinfandel is packaged in 375ml bottles ($16) with 160 total cases available.
Both beers will be released at American Solera on Feb. 10.
