Victor, Idaho – Grand Teton Brewing is initiating release of their barrel-aged beers in bottles starting today with release of their award-winning American Sour 2014 in 11.2 ounce bottles.

Starting today, Grand Teton Brewing will release the best of their barrel-aged beers in 11.2 ounce glass bottles as part of their new Brewers’ Series beers. Grand Teton will bottle limited quantities of each release. Available cases will be allocated to our distributors in each of our current markets. Each release will continue to be available in sixth barrel kegs as we have done historically.

This new line will feature a collection of unique, one-off brews highlighting the creative artistry of our brewers. Brewers’ Series beers will be truly special, with interesting techniques, ingredients and fermentation profiles, often barrel-aged and always exciting.

Our first release, American Sour 2014, was awarded the Silver Medal in the American-Style Wild or Sour Ale category at North American Beer Awards competition in early June.

This beer will age well for years, continuing to develop unique flavors from the various yeasts and bacteria with which we chose to ferment this beer. Future releases will be made as new beers are ready.
