A Note on This Beer
Today’s beer is our first insider hookup from Firestone Walker’s barrel room, and OH, WHAT A HOOKUP IT IS!
It’s the first Golden Pink Raspberry and Candied Violet Petal Wild Ale we’ve ever shared!!
In fact, very few breweries in the world have dabbled with this unique combination of ingredients.
If that wasn't thrilling enough, Violet Underground Batch #2 is also part of a very limited, UK Rainbow Project collaboration series. Each year, world-renowned breweries pair up to design seven new beers based around a theme for each color of the rainbow.
For this avant-garde Barrel Aged Sour, FW joined forces with England's award-winning Wild Beer Co. Their mission: create a brew that embodies the essence of the color violet.
"Nailed it" doesn't do these breweries justice! Firestone partially fermented Violet Underground with native yeasts shared by Wild Beer Co. It's a cross-Atlantic Wild Ale full of fresh raspberry notes, lively cider-like tartness, and candied floral sweetness that disappears into a dry, mouthwatering finish.
Your friends won't be able to fully understand the palate-awakening, sensory experience you're about to embark on. How could they? You have to taste Violet Underground to be able to fully appreciate its glory.
*Firestone Walker says the shelf-life of this beer is longer than 20 years! Enjoy now or cellar for a momentous occasion.
