Berthoud, Colorado — Another round of Scoundrel returns to City Star Saturday, June 17th at 12pm! Our 2017 vintage of this sour barrel-aged brown weighs in at 6.8% ABV and has been hiding out in oak Cabernet wine barrels for two years. Intentionally soured with a blend of lactobacillus and pediococcus bacteria creating a pleasantly sour version of our 2013 Great American Beer Festival gold medal-winning Bandit Brown Ale.
500 bottles will be available for sale at $16/22oz bottle (1 case limit per person), AND Scoundrel will be on draft for sampling. Each bottle is dipped in wax and hand stamped with the City Star Brewing seal. With only 500 bottles of Scoundrel, we don’t expect our supply to stick around.
The night before the big release a special Scoundrel Pairing & Pre-Release event will be held in City Star’s Zoller Barrel House with a limited number of pairings available. The $20 event ticket includes a 10oz pour of Scoundrel expertly paired with a craft cheese, 22oz bottle of Scoundrel to take home, and early access to purchase bottles of Scoundrel with a 10% discount.
