For the first time ever, The Bruery is releasing a foeder-aged beer in cans.
Wit The Funk is a 5.7 percent ABV Belgian wit-style ale brewed with coriander, orange peel and “traditional Belgian wit yeast” before being aged in a combination of American and French oak foeders. The resulting creation produces a sour ale without the use of kettle souring.
“This beer has a very complex yeast character for the more experienced beer connoisseur and an approachable level of tartness for those who are new to sour beer,” said Jeremy Grinkey, senior production manager at The Bruery, in a press release. “It’s our passion for old world traditions and the complexity of old world sour and wild ales that inspire us to work with wild yeast and bacteria to create a live product that truly is an expression of The Bruery’s commitment to quality craftsmanship.”
According to a press release, Wit the Funk is slated to be shipped to retailers packaged in 16-ounce cans across The Bruery’s national distribution network in “early February.” The beer will also be released in The Bruery’s tasting rooms and will be available to be purchased online.
An email to the brewery was not immediately returned.
