Barrel-aged Sour No. 2
The make Joni, the second in our series of barrel-aged fruited sours, Brewmaster Eric Johnson started with his house golden ale base. It was primary fermented clean in stainless steel before transferred to Bordeaux wine barrels and inoculation with souring bacteria and aged for over a year. 40 pounds of cherries were added to each barrel and aged further. Each barrel produces unique flavor characteristics and only a few were hand-selected to create the tart, light, beautiful final beer, Joni.
