Council Brewing Co. has joined forces with Modern Times Beer to release Modern Magic, a 6.5 percent ABV golden sour ale brewed with Vienna malts, aged in oak foeders and conditioned on nectarines, peaches, tangerine juice and zest as well as vanilla beans.
“The concept of our collaboration included refermentation of Masumoto organic peaches and nectarines, and combining our mixed fermentation house cultures,” reads a post on Council’s website. “We used a higher kilned (toasted) base malt, Vienna, to balance the bright stone fruit flavors.”
According to Council Brewing, Modern Magic is packaged in 750ml bottles ($21.99) and is available for sale on the brewery’s website now with a six bottle per person purchase limit. In addition, bottles will be on sale during a release event at the brewery on Jan. 20.
