BACK ALLEY BREW
PEACHY BLINDERS Pastry Sour
Since our small batch Back Alley Brew series lets our brewers flex their creative muscles, it only makes sense that the can features the creative work of a local artist. This BAB, inspired by peach ice cream, was created by one of our brewers, Morgan, and features the work of local artist Serena Tang.

WHAT IS OUR B.A.B. SERIES?
Every three months, our brewing team gets to showcase their skills and creativity in whatever weird and wonderful way strikes their mood (... and we can attest, they are all both weird AND wonderful!)
The brewers will get and idea and we'll start working on a small "test batch", which is about 20L or so. We'll taste it, adjust, and brew it again and again until we are happy with the beer. These one-off brews are what make up our Back Alley Brew series! They're limited releases but the sky's the limit for this series!
To give you a bit of an idea: we brewed a Wee Heavy Braggot dubbed "Crossing Streams" with mead from Fallen Timber Meadery, "Dale’s Coffee Pale Ale" made with locally roasted coffee, "Ocean Pearl" Gose with tons of fresh cucumbers and sea salt, and "Old Jakes' Dark Saison" made with French Saison Yeast)! ... All we're saying is that they're wacky, wonderful, and you gotta try them before they're gone!
