More than five months after it was bottled, Russian River Brewing Co. has announced when the newest batch of Beatification will be released.
According to a Facebook post, the newest incarnation of one the Santa Rosa, Calif.-based brewery’s most popular beers will be released on Sept. 20. The beer, which is packaged in 375ml bottles, will retail for $20 each and there will be a six bottle per person limit. There will be approximately 500 cases available, which is roughly half of the amount that was produced for the last release. Although there has been no confirmation yet, Beatification has historically come in around 6 percent ABV.
Beatification is Russian River’s, a wild ale that is spontaneously fermented and typically finishes around 6 percent ABV. After brewing, the beer is transferred to a coolship, where it remains overnight to collect wild yeast and bacteria from the air. It is then transferred again, this time into oak wine barrels to ferment and age before being bottled.
This will be the seventh release of Beatification, which was first released in 2006 and was last available exclusively at the brewery on Dec. 14, 2013.
