A new beer from Wicked Weed Brewing invokes the story of a mythical daughter.
First released on draft in mid-2014, Medora is a 6.6 percent ABV sour blonde ale that has been “aged in red wine barrels with one pound of blackberries and raspberries per gallon.”
“The daughter of a king, Medora was wrought with the burden of expectations,” reads the beer label. “Her father did his upmost to speak confidence into his young daughter. Time passed and with it the king, leaving Medora his sole heir. Her melancholy deepened. One night a great meteor flashed across the northern sky. Her father’s words lit into her heart: “Choose happiness; no expectation or circumstance can usurp your will to rejoice in them. Medora thrived, and as for imposed expectations; she never gave them credence again.”
According to filings with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), the new bottle-conditioned limited release will be packaged in 500ml bottles.
An email sent to the brewery for additional details was not immediately returned.
