Stillwater Artisanal Preternatural Cuvée 2 750ML
In 2014, Stillwater Artisanal procured a truckload of freshly emptied California wine barrels and our friends at Faction Brewing were gracious enough to help us brew up some base farmhouse ale to fill them with. In the end, roughly two-thirds of the barrels held a blonde saison base and the other third held a dark saison base. We then used the liquid in the barrels to practice extended aging with wild yeast and combining varying amounts of assorted California-sourced grape juices. After 3 years in oak, roughly 2 years conditioning in bottle, and many blending and tasting sessions, we are finally ready to release 5 beautiful beer / wine hybrid blends in 2019.
