Archetype Brewing Releases First Beer of 2020 Barrel Program
At long last, the first 2020 barrel-aged beer from Archetype Brewing has been released. Walk the Earth Blend No. 5 is the latest addition to the experimental saison series, each one more unique than the last. No. 5 reminds us of juicy peaches, summer cobbler, and bright acidity. You’ll pick up on the peach right away, but don’t miss that leathery funk from the Brettanomyces yeast, the other stonefruit flavors, and the balanced complexity of a perfectly aged saison. Aged 9 months in French Oak red wine barrels. Coming in at 9.2% ABV, this beer is funky, not sour. Deceptively smooth and easy-drinking, it’s the perfect beverage to enjoy during these dog days of summer. With significant delays due to the ongoing pandemic, the program schedule has been altered, but the team still promises 8 unique, freshly-aged beers by the end of the year.
500mL bottles of Walk the Earth Blend No. 5 are available at the taproom for pickup.
