Barrel Aged Sours

Old Sour Cherry Porter

Old Sour Cherry Porter was not a beer that was planned, but one that has become a staple at Rivertown. This delicious disaster was born when it became apparent that the original intentions of brewing a Bourbon Barrel Aged Porter became compromised by wild yeasts and bacterias. Instead of dumping the barrel, we added pounds of fresh, tart, Northern Michigan cherries and Old Sour Cherry was born. A velvety, full bodied, complex blend of roasted chocolate malt and tart cherry, this is a beer that can be drank fresh or is capable of developing beautifully in the bottle for years to come.

Malt: 2-Row, Chocolate, Abbey, Dark Crystal, Roasted Barley Hops: Bravo ABV: 7.9% IBU: 35 SRM: 38 Speciality: Tart Cherries

Available When Ready

Lambic

Beer is typically fermented in a very calculated, controlled manner with pure strains of brewers’ yeast. Our award winning lambic beer is instead fermented by exposing it to the untamed yeasts and bacteria that are native to our Brewery. We affectionately call this unrestrained, wild amalgamation our House Funk. This blend is unique to Rivertown and this unusual, spontaneous process, involving over a year of fermentation in oak wine barrels, is what gives this beer its distinctive flavor; dry, funky, vinous, and cidery, with a crisp, sour aftertaste that will continue to develop in the bottle for years to come.

We affectionately call this unrestrained, wild amalgamation our House Funk. This blend is unique to Rivertown and this unusual, spontaneous process, involving over a year of fermentation in oak wine barrels and over 45 pounds of fresh, whole blackberries per barrel, is what gives this beer its distinctive flavor; semi-sweet, funky and vinous with a crisp, tart aftertaste that will continue to develop in the bottle for years to come.

Ville de Rivere Geuze

Our lambic beers are fermented by exposure to the untamed yeasts and bacteria that are native to our Brewery. We affectionately call this unrestrained, wild amalgamation our House Funk and Ville De Rivere Geuze is the outcome of a thoughtful, hands on blending of our young, one year old and mature, three year old sour lambic beers. Following the blending process, the beer is then allowed to mature in the bottle for up to six months and the result is a beautifully, balanced dry, musty, cider, vinous, sour ale that will continue to develop in the bottle for years to come.

Malt: 2-Row, Rolled Oats, White Wheat Hops: Bravo ABV: 6.2% IBU: 8 SRM: 5
