WOODFIN, N.C. – Zillicoah Beer Company will celebrate its one-year anniversary by releasing the first two beers in its bottle program.
Bottle No. 1 is A Hoppy Farmhouse Ale with Brett (6.4% ABV), the first in Zillicoah’s Citrine Dream line, a series dedicated to hop-forward wild ales. Brewed with Barley, Wheat, Rye and Oats, hopped with Strata and then open fermented, Citrine Dream is dank, tropical, and dry.
Bottle No. 2, Saison (6% ABV), was brewed with Pilsner Malt and Abruzzi Rye from Riverbend Malt House, hopped with Saaz, and open fermented to create a dry, crisp, classic take on the style.
Both Citrine Dream and Saison were bottle conditioned and will be available in 750 mL format at Zillicoah’s Taproom on Saturday, October 20th. Bottles are $15 each.
