Hangar 24 Vinaceous

Beer Data

STYLE
English Old Ale (Ale)
AVAILABILITY
Spring
8.7% ABV
41 IBU

The first beer in our Local Fields Series, Vinaceous was created to combine the best characteristics of wine and beer. Brewed in the style of an English Old Ale, this beer deviates from tradition with an ample addition of freshly crushed Mourvedre grapes from Temecula. Vinaceous pours a deep burgundy color and boasts flavors of rich malt, brown sugar, dark berries and a touch of oak in the finish.

Additional Information:

As with each beer in our Local Fields Series, we looked to local growers for inspiration. For Vinaceous, we obtained some Mourvedre grapes from our friends at Wilson Creek Winery in Temecula. Wilson Creek has been producing outstanding wines in Southern California since 1996. We anticipate that this joint venture will further demonstrate the exceptional qualities of artisan wine and craft beer and how they can work harmoniously together.

With the sweet grapes added, this is an interesting beer. The kind of beer I'd share with wine drinkers.

Either way, this brew has an interesting character and malty quality. Also used as a conversation started about what beer really is.
