Next week a new version of one of The Collective Brewing Project’s most popular beers is being released again, and this time there are double the number of bottles to go around.
The beer in question is Wood Folk 2017, a 7.4 percent ABV sour golden ale brewed with pilsner malt, spelt, oats and wheat and was aged in a foeder for approximately four months before being transferred to small format neutral oak barrels, where it aged for an additional eight months. In addition, one of the aforementioned barrels containing Wood Folk was found to have apricot purée that was left in while the beer was aging, and that beer was blended into the final bottled version.
Wood Folk was the first release in The Collective Brewing Project’s Foeder Fantasies Series, which is made up of beers that originate in a foeder, which are large wooden fermenters. It is also the first beer released from the Fort Worth-based brewery that was aged in a foeder.
Wood Folk 2017 will be packaged in 500ml bottles ($13) with approximately 3,200 bottles available and no purchase limit when it goes on sale at the brewery on July 29, although members of the brewery’s membership clubs will be able to pick up their bottles starting on July 26. In addition, unlike the first release, the newest incarnation of Wood Folk will be distributed to retailers.
