Passionfruit Sour Ale, an uncommon sour ale with a kiss of tropical fruit


Our award-winning sour ale returns for 2014 as our official “summer seasonal.” Passionfruit Sour is brewed as a traditional German Berliner weisse, and then we add a unique, tropical twist. We use lactic acid-producing bacteria to produce a beer that is light in body, extremely refreshing, and mouth puckeringly tart. The addition of passionfruit in our lagering tanks gives this beer an inviting stonefruit aroma.

Available from June through late August in 22 oz. bottles, 1/6 bbl and 50L draft in Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Hawaii, and Japan
