Ephesus, Golden Sour Release
Tomorrow 2/26/16 at 11am in the Tasting Room


“As a brewer and drinker of beer, I prefer my beer to be balanced so I can enjoy a whole glass… I also like to have each characteristic to be noticeable but not over powering.”  
- Liz Chism, Head Brewer

In the case of Ephesus, a Golden Sour Ale Aged in Oak Barrels, Liz describes it as sour but balanced; stone fruit notes, but no fruit added; honey and vanilla notes from the barrel, but not sweet.

Beer Description: Ephesus (7% ABV) was fermented with our house cultures and aged in American oak barrels for one year. Every bottle is corked and capped and we expect it to age nicely. The original intention was to add a stone fruit to the beer, but it became apparent on the first tasting that is was not going to be necessary. The naturally fermented flavors of this beer shine through beautifully on their own. 

Release Date: Tomorrow, Friday February 26th, 2016 at 11am
Where can you purchase bottles? Bottles are first come, first serve and only available for sale in the Council Tasting Room. The price is $22 per 750 ml bottle, Limit 4 per person (no proxy's).

Next Barrel Aged Release - Gaderian

Gaderian – Old Ale (11.4% ABV)
Preview Keg: 3/3 from 2pm-10pm
Bottle Release: 3/10 from 2pm-10pm
Price: $22 per 750ml bottle | Limit 4 per person
Beer description: Gaderian is an English style Old Ale aged in oak barrels for one year with Brettanomyces. Gaderian is an old English word that means to bring people together embodying the Council Brewing spirit. The result is an incredibly complex, rustic beer with notes of figs, molasses, toasted bread and caramel with the Brettanomyces imparting woodsy and leathery characteristics. The rich silky mouthfeel keeps the flavors lingering on the palate. Pour slowly and enjoy in a wide tulip glass.

This beer will only be available in the Council Brewing Tasting Room during hours, starting on Thursday March 10th, 2016 at 2pm. Get there early, because this is a limited release of under 250 bottles.
