September Barrel Aged Beer Releases

Deadlock 

with Boysenberry

Deadlock Dark Sour is a series of barrel aged American dark sour ales that are fermented with a mixed culture of Brettanomyces, and Lactobacillus and then aged on berry fruits. For the Summer 2015 release, we chose to age this beer on boysenberries. Deadlock has rich notes of chocolate covered boysenberries and deep, barrel complexity. The Lacto and Brett provide supporting tartness and earthy, wild grown fruit notes. This beer is bottle conditioned to help the flavors evolve over the seasons. 
Pre-Sale Tickets: September 10th, 2015 at 12 noon via brownpapertickets.com. We will post the link to social media (twitter and facebook), once the sale is live. The cost of each 750 ml bottle is $18 plus tax. Only 450 bottles will be released, resulting in a limit of (2) bottles per person; No proxies.

Nicene September 2015 Release

Nicene (Batch #2) was brewed with traditional Saison ingredients to provide a rustic, bready malt backbone and paired with the tropical fruit forward wine and French oak notes achieved from the white wine barrels. Over time, Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus will continue to develop the gentle sourness and earthy flavors. This sour Saison was manually packaged with tremendous care and bottle conditioned with high carbonation for optimal enjoyment in a tulip glass.

Meet Stuart - Council’s Sales Rep

Meet Stuart Sloan, Council Brewing Company Sales Representative. When it comes to working for Council, Stuart isn’t afraid to take on tasks. From making sales and account management, to planning outside events and making deliveries, he is eager to help in any way he can.

Stuart is a San Diego native and excited to be home, saying “I love everything San Diego, from the food, to the beer, and even to the sports (even though I'm still waiting for a championship).” His background in the craft beer industry began in Fresno, where he worked as a Sales Rep. for Tioga-Sequoia Brewing Co. When asked what excites him about working for Council Brewing, Stuart stated, “…there is a great atmosphere of being passionate about what each person does here. I love the fact that everyone plays a key role in the success of the company.”
His favorite Council beer is the Beatitude Three Berry. “It is so juicy and when I drink it I can imagine all of the berries being blended up into a tart, juicy blend to make this beer as awesome as it is. It's also very refreshing!”

If you are like Stuart and enjoy the Beatitude Three Berry (Blueberry, Blackberry, and Raspberry), you are in luck. It is the next large batch Beatitude to be released Monday, September 14th, 2015. Three Berry will be available in bottles through the tasting room, as well as distribution for retailers. Kegs will also be available for retailers. If you would like to see Beatitude in your bottle shop or bar, Stuart’s your man.
