Grand Cru Red: 2016 Vintage
10.5% ABV • 750ml Bottles
An imperial sour red ale brewed with California Zinfandel and Petite Sirah grapes, raspberries and vanilla beans, and aged in red wine barrels for twelve months.
Grand Cru Red blends a Flanders Red-style sour ale with California red wine grapes, locally grown raspberries and whole vanilla beans to craft something truly unique. We combined lush Zinfandel and Petite Sirah grapes with a special imperial version of our oak-aged Dogpatch Sour ale and finished it with Santa Cruz Mountain raspberries and fragrant vanilla beans.
Tannic red wine notes mingle with complex sour yeast flavors and French oak barrel character to create an exceptionally original new brew. Pair with rich and savory beef, venison or duck dishes and enjoy on very special occasions.
