American Solera has already incorporated different fruits into various beers, and next month peaches will have their shot.
The new beer is named Peach Fellowship, a 5.6 percent ABV sour ale aged in oak barrels with Redhaven peaches from Porter, Okla. The ale was first released as a draft-only option at the brewery early last month.
Peach Fellowship will be the fifth fruited sour that the Tulsa, Okla.-based brewery has released in bottles:
- Folder Cerise (5.5 percent ABV) — sour ale conditioned on Montmorency cherries in Italian oak foeders for six months
- Raspbarrel (6 percent ABV) — sour ale conditioned on raspberries
- Cranbarrel (5.6 percent ABV) — sour ale conditioned on cranberries
- Bluebarrel (5.6 percent ABV) — sour ale conditioned on blueberries
- Peach Fellowship (5.6 percent ABV) — sour ale aged in oak barrels with Redhaven peaches
Announced earlier this year, American Solera is the brainchild of Chase Healey, who recently sold his stake in Prairie Artisan Ales to Krebs, Okla.-based Krebs Brewing Co. in order to concentrate on the new brewery, which will focus on various beer styles aged in oak barrels.
According to the brewery, Peach Fellowship are packaged in 375ml bottles ($14) with 170 cases available, along with 30 3L bottles that were offered to Society members at a price of $130 each. American Solera Society members will get two 375ml bottles as part of their membership and have the option to purchase four more bottles before sales open up with no limits to members on Nov. 10.
Any bottles remaining after that will be offered to the public in the American Solera taproom starting on Nov. 25.
