Loaded Question Brewing Company Releases Fluid Intuition

PORTSMOUTH, NH.  — Loaded Question Brewing, a locally owned brewing company in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, will debut a rare beer in a bottle release on Saturday, November 23, just in time for Thanksgiving.

Fluid Intuition is a sour ale that has been aged over cherries for fifteen months in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels. It clocks in at 7.1% ABV.

“The name stems from the fact that mixed culture sour beers take a long time to make and because of the number of elements involved, like yeast strains and bacteria, they’re not as predictable as normal beer,” said Tom Bath, founder and head brewer, Loaded Question.

This is just the second bottle release in Loaded Question Brewing’s history. The first release, in 2018, was also a barrel aged beer.

“We are actively building a barrel program,” added Bath. Earlier in the month, Loaded Question released a draft-only barrel aged Belgian Quad called Monk’s Vice. Four additional beers are currently aging in various barrels.

Fluid Intuition will be available on draft and in bottles at their taproom in Portsmouth’s West End beginning on Saturday, November 23.
