Firestone Walker Bretta Blanc and Champs de Fraises

Firestone Walker Bretta Blanc...$11.99 / 375ml 
Introducing Bretta Blanc - our latest wild child from Barrelworks!
Bretta Blanc is a distinctive wild ale fermented with white wine grapes from David Walker's family vineyard, creating a deliciously effervescent beer-wine hybrid.
This beer was aged for up to three years in French oak barrels and has notes of honeysuckle and honeydew melon, with a soft Champagne-like mouthfeel for maximum drinkability.

Firestone Walker Champs de Fraises...$11.99 / 375ml
We searched high and low for the perfect strawberry to add to our wild ale. We were not satisfied with the fruit aroma and flavor until we discovered a unique variety from the Mount Hood region in Oregon. It’s bright red flesh, sweet perfume and wild strawberry character is the perfect match for our beer, Champs de Fraises (Strawberry fields). A generous dose of strawberries were allowed a tertiary fermentation with a wheat beer matured 5-24 months in 100% French oak barrels. A fresh sweet strawberry perfume gives way to earthy funk, bracing acidity and malt undertones. A lively carbonation and underlying oak tannins create a thoroughly refreshing beverage. Santé!
