Fans of The Collective Brewing Project’s Wood Folk are not dreaming, there is a new variant being released next month.
In an email, Ryan Deyo, co-owner of The Collective Brewing Project, told Tenemu that Dream Folk is a 7.4 percent ABV sour golden ale brewed with pilsner malt, spelt, oats and wheat before being aged in a foeder for two months, then transferred to small format red wine barrels where it aged for an additional six to eight months. The ale was then aged for an additional two months on both vanilla beans and orange zest in stainless steel tanks. The new beer uses the Fort Worth, Texas-based brewery’s Wood Folk (7.4 percent ABV) as its base, a beer that was first released in July 2016.
The beer was originally scheduled to be released during North Texas Beer Week between Nov. 11 and Nov. 20, 2016, but the labels were not ready in time.
This is the second release in The Collective Brewing Project’s Foeder Fantasies Series, which is made up of beers that originate in a foeder, or large wooden fermenters. It is also the second beer released form the Fort Worth-based brewery that was aged in a foeder.
According to The Collective Brewing Project, Dream Folk will be packaged in 500ml bottles ($13) with approximately 2,000 bottles available, and is scheduled to be released with no bottle limits on Feb. 11, although members of the brewery’s membership club will be able to pick up their bottles starting on Feb. 9.
