Bear with us, Black Project fans! We have two exciting updates, so we apologize in advance for this lengthy blog post.
We will start with the announcement of our new public bottle sale format, followed by the details of our June bottle release.
New Public Sale Format
Starting in June 2019, we will no longer have online presales for any of our public bottle releases. Instead, we will simply release any and all public bottles starting on a pre-announced Friday in the taproom, during regular business hours. These bottles will be available on a first come, first served basis, and they will be available until supplies run out. Our fans will still have the opportunity to order bottles online. However, they will need to join our AGENT program in order to do so. (More details on the AGENT program will come soon)
June Bottle Release
The second thing we have to talk about is the two bottles we’re releasing in June, (1) LUNEX & (2) SUPERCRUISE: Temp | Cab Franc
LUNEX is one of our beers brewed within the standards of Methode Traditionnelle - 3 Year. It is a blend of 3-year spontaneously fermented beer with Bourbon barrel aged coffee beans from Corvus Coffee, added post-fermentation. We like to say it smells like all the delicious parts of coffee but without all the harsher flavors.
SUPERCRUISE: Temp | Cab Franc
SUPERCRUISE starts with wine grapes from locally-sourced, family-owned vineyards in Palisade, CO. Once the grapes have been destemmed and crushed, we allow the juice to rest for a few days - developing rich color and depth of flavor - before finally transferring the juice to neutral oak barrels along with our base Golden Sour. The beer then goes through a secondary fermentation while resting on the grapes, and after a few weeks is ready to bottle. Fruited at about half of what we do for Mach-Limit, the stonefruit character from the base beer is backed by bright fruit and soft tannins, yet the beer still shines through.
Both bottles will be available in the taproom, starting at 2pm on Friday, June 21.
