The Unholy Alliance

IMG_2686 copy

We love working with local companies, bringing together seemingly different industries to make some kick ass beer. Unholy Alliance, our aptly named collaboration with Rock Wall Wine Company (Alameda, CA), is a Viognier Grape American Sour Beer that’ll be released for the first time ever in bottles on August 26th.

Rockwall provided us with 2000 pounds of Viognier grape skins. “The grapes are lightly pressed by the winemakers to keep from extracting too much of the tannins, which leaves lots of sugar in the skins” commented Travis Camacho, our Barrel Master extraordinaire. “This makes the grapes perfect for fermenting in a sour beer.” We dropped all 2000 pounds into a batch of our Blonde American Sour and let them ferment with some Brette, Pedio, and Lacto. “The grape skins infuse unique wine like qualities to the beer that play well with the bugs.” Citrus, grass and melon dominate the palate melding with some mild funk in this delicious sour.

Unholy Alliance will go on sale on August 26th at our Anniversary Party, where we will also be dishing out tastings at our Meet the Brewers booth. Visit to snag tickets for the party.
