Next month, The Collective Brewing Project’s will be releasing a beer that includes the use of the first foeder owned by a brewery in north Texas.
The new beer is named Foeder Fantasies Wood Folk, 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. The ale was then transferred to small format red wine barrels where it aged for an additional six to eight months before being bottled.
As the name implies, Wood Folk will be the first release in a new series from The Collective Brewing Project dubbed Foeder Fantasies, which will be made up of beers that originate in a foeder, which are large wooden fermenters. It is also the first beer released form the Fort Worth-based brewery that was aged in a foeder.
Folder Fantasies Wood Folk will be packaged in 500ml bottles ($12-$15) with approximately 1,500 bottles available when it goes on sale at the brewery on Aug. 13. The new beer will also have the lowest purchase limit of any previous The Collective Brewing Project bottle release, between three and six bottles per person.
