Big Boss Brewing to Release Pineapple Sour Ale

RALEIGH, N.C. — Big Boss Brewing will release new sour pineapple ale this Thursday, June 27.  The beer is available in kegs to customers all over North Carolina, and a limited number of 100 bottles will be available at the taproom at a first-come, first-serve basis.

“The beauty of this beer is the base beer itself! Aged in these massive oak tanks, this amber ale provides a hearty foundation to big fruit additions,” said Big Boss cellarman John Pyburn, who supervised the project.

The beer is called F2 Pineapple and is released as part of the “Strange Cargo“ series of oak aged ales. F2 Pineapple was created by combining matured oak foedre base sour ale with young amber ale into a 50/50 blend. The addition of fresh pineapple puree brings out a natural tiki bar inspired flavor to the brew.
