Aurora, CO – Dry Dock Brewing Company’s Sour Apricot hit cans this week! Six-packs of this session-able sour ale will be available at North Dock today, at South Dock tomorrow, and in liquor stores across Colorado as early as next week. Also beginning today, guests can fill Crowlers of Sour Apricot at North Dock.
Dry Dock’s Sour Apricot was developed out of a series of kettle sour experiments at South Dock, created by adding Lactobacillus in the wort prior to fermentation. This approachable sour ale strikes an elegant balance of sour and sweet, hence the Ralph Waldo Emerson quote on the can. Refreshingly tart and fruity with bright effervescence, Sour Apricot packs rich apricot flavor in every can while retaining just the right amount of acidity.
Sour Apricot joins Dry Dock’s year-round canned Home Fleet that includes the brewery’s flagship Apricot Blonde, as well as Amber Ale, Hop Abomination IPA, Wheat Beer, and Vanilla Porter.
Win a free case of Sour Apricot! Show us your pucker face using the hashtag #sourapricot on Instagram or Facebook between now and June 2. The winning photograph will be announced at the Sour Apricot release party at North Dock on Thursday, June 2 at 6pm. The contest winner must be present to win.
