Tickets are now on sale for Firestone Walker Brewing Co.’s latest bottle release, which will include three Barrelworks beers: two are returning releases, while the last is an existing beer debuting on bottles.
The first returning beer is Peachy Bones, a brettanomyces-infused saison-style beer conditioned on white peaches and aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. This is the second time that the ale has been released, and the newest incarnation will was bottled on March 7, with 300 cases available.
In addition, Firestone Walker will be releasing ZinSkin, a wild beer fermented in 100% American oak barrels with 2015 Zinfindel grape skins. This is also the second time that ZinSkin was been released in bottles, and it was packaged on Jan. 12 with 200 cases available.
Finally, the lone new bottled beer is named Reginald Brett, which is made up of Firestone Walker’s Double DBA that has been age in bourbon barrels for three months before going through 18 months of secondary fermentation and finished up by aging longer in both French and American oak barrels. While the ale has been available on draft, this marks the first time it has been packaged. Reginald Brett was bottled on May 16, and only 255 cases were produced.
