SAN MARCOS, Calif. — Winner of a Bronze medal at World Beer Cup for American Style Sour (2013), Red Poppy, The Lost Abbey’s Flander’s Red Ale with sour cherries makes its 2018 debut.
Inspired by the California State flower, Red Poppy is a veritable celebration of sour cherries. Aged in oak barrels for over 12 months, Red Poppy begins with a burst of fresh tart cherries and layers of tropical Brett funk, leading to a dry, red wine tannic-like finish.
“Red Poppy checks a lot of boxes for me what I want in a sour beer,” said Tomme Arthur, Co-Founder, and COO of The Lost Abbey. “The funkiness of the Brett paired with the tartness of the cherries, it’s why Red Poppy is the only Lost Abbey beer without any story on the back, it speaks for itself.”
Red Poppy will be released on March 30th in both Lost Abbey tasting rooms and will hit limited distribution throughout The Lost Abbey distribution network beginning in April.
