A debut release from Toolbox Brewing Co. is sure to please raspberry lovers just in time for Valentine’s Day.
The new beer is Rustique Framboise, a 7 percent ABV “rustic sour” aged for six months in French oak red wine and Chardonnay barrels with fresh, whole raspberries sourced from California. The beer was then bottle conditioned for an additional 4 months before being deemed ready to be released.
According to a post on the Vista, Calif.-based brewery’s Instagram page, Rustique Framboise is packaged in 750ml bottles ($22) and will have a six bottle limit per person when it is released on Feb. 11. In addition to being sold at the brewery, the beer will also be available online and picked up via a proxy.
