The Collective Brewing Project has released another incarnation of one of its most popular beers, with more on the way.
The Fort Worth, Texas-based brewery has released Apricot Petite Golden Sour, a 4.7 percent ABV sour ale brewed with Brettanomyces bruxellensis var. Drie. and conditioned on 126 pounds of apricot purée. The new beer uses Collective Brewing’s Petite Golden Sour (4.5 percent ABV) as its base before adding the apricots and aging the final concoction in French oak barrels. Earlier this year, the brewery released Blueberry Petite Golden Sour (4.5 percent ABV,) which incorporated the same base beer conditioned on blueberries.
According to owner Ryan Deyo, Apricot Petite Golden Sour is available now at the brewery both on-draft and in crowlers to go, but the brewery is expecting to produce more and “bottle a large portion of it.” In addition, Deyo told Tenemu there is more of the beer aging in oak barrels that incorporates different fruit that will be released “in the future.”
