Come celebrate the special release of Bretta Rosé at Barrelworks during SYV Craft Beer Month!
Thirty miles north of Barrelworks lies the fertile Santa Maria Valley. Its warm days and cool marine layer-fed evenings allow for a cornucopia of fruits and vegetables to be grown in its rich soil. One such offering is locally grown raspberries. We jumped at the opportunity to ferment fresh local raspberries with one of our Barrelworks creations. Behold Bretta Rosé! A low-alcohol Berliner Wiesse style ale, acidified and matured in French oak puncheons for 6 months, is the foundation for this gem. Add 1000 lbs. of fresh raspberries, allow a secondary wild fermentation for 4 more months and voila (!), we have a crisp effervescent concoction, bursting with raspberry perfume and flavor, rosé color, bracing acidity, and a clean refreshing finish. Pour into a champagne flute or your favorite glass and enjoy!
Join us starting at noon as we celebrate with a live band in our barrel room along with small food and beer pairings.
