A draft-only creation from Russian River Brewing Co. may be making the jump to smaller bottles.
According to a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), that beer is Compunction, a 7.5 percent ABV blonde ale that has been aged “for several months” in wine barrels with fresh, whole plumcots before being packaged in 375ml bottles. The ale debuted as a draft-only option in February 2007 and this would be the first time it has been packaged in smaller format bottles, although it has been sold in magnum bottles in the past.
Sometimes referred to as plouts, plumcots are a hybrid fruit combining plums and apricots that was developed by botanist Luther Burbank in Sonoma county where Russian River is based.
An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
