The Rare Barrel Announces Ensorcelled Release Date

The Rare Barrel has announced the release date of another highly sought after brew. Ensorcelled is a "dark sour beer aged in oak barrels with raspberries" and will be released at the brewery on Friday, June 3rd.

In a post on the company's Facebook page, The Rare Barrel outlined the three awards Ensorcelled has won since its inception in 2013, including a silver in the most recent World Beer Cup.

Here is the post from The Rare Barrel:

Bottle Release Friday, June 3rd | Ensorcelled

Ensorcelled, our dark sour aged in oak barrels with raspberries, was just awarded the silver medal at the 2016 World Beer Cup in the American-style Sour Ale category!!! We're honored and humbled to receive this award from the most respectable international beer competition. Our intention is to brew and blend the best sour beer possible to provide to sour beer drinkers, however recognition like this from our peers in the industry is mighty darn cool. 

Our third blend of Ensorcelled, fermented with Brettanomyces yeast and Lactobacillus bacteria, displays notes of raspberry jam and dark chocolate. Ensorcelled, which means "enchanted", is actually one of the first five beers we ever made. We decided to name this beer "Ensorcelled" back in 2013 because Jay, our Director of Brewing and Blending, was particularly enchanted by this beer as our first couple of batches came to fruition. As one of our favorite sour beers to produce, we love how this beer reminds us of a decadent chocolate raspberry tart dessert. 

Fun fact...this is the 3rd award Ensorcelled has won! It was also awarded a gold medal at the 2014 World Beer Cup and a silver medal at the 2015 Great American Beer Festival.

Bottles will be available for purchase in the Tasting Room on Friday, June 3rd starting at 4PM. Limits will be updated Thursday before Noon, and are priced at $30/750mL bottle.
