Press Release – Adelbert’s Brewery Launches Exclusive Line of Fruited Sours

Written by Adelbert's on . Posted in Blog

February 1, 2017 – AUSTIN – Adelbert’s Brewery is pleased to announce the release of Passion Fruit Sour, the first in a new fruited sour series available exclusively at the brewery. Passion Fruit Sour, which will release on February 10th, has been nicknamed a “vacation in a bottle.”

The brewery blends in passion fruit with a variety of house yeast strains during its 18 months of aging in oak barrels to develop a refreshing, tropical sour ale balanced with just the right amount of unique barrel notes.

Scott Hovey, Founder & Brewmaster of Adelbert’s Brewery said, “Every batch in this series will taste unique. We use a blend of several barrels for each sour. Some were inoculated naturally while others were inoculated with strains we chose. We don’t use a standard house yeast strain or base beer recipe. We change what we put into the barrels each time to give more complexity to the blends.”

Confirmed fruit sour releases will include Passion Fruit Sour, Raspberry Sour and Blueberry Sour. Several other flavors are still in the testing phase and will be announced once the brewery is happy with the blends. Future release dates will be announced on social media and by press release.

Hovey added, “We select the barrels to blend for each individual batch based on what tastes best at that time. In fact, we already dumped 20% of the barrels aged because we didn’t like the flavors that developed.”

In light of the brewery converting to a brewpub permit in 2016, the brewery plans to use the new license as an opportunity to test the response to limited release beers before evaluating for larger market release. Blackberry Barrel of Love, released in late 2016, and the fruited sours will be the first of many such beers to become available.

Adelbert’s Donates Over $5,000 to the Breast Cancer Resource Center

BCRC Adelberts Check

AUSTIN, Texas (December 15, 2016) – Adelbert’s Brewery is excited to announce a donation of $5,583.50 to the Breast Cancer Resource Center as the result of sales from Hibiscus Saison cans year to date and its annual It’s the Tits Fest fundraiser in October.

“It is humbling to see how something that started small to honor my mom as a breast cancer survivor has grown into project with momentum to raise money to help so many women,” said Sarah Haney, General Manager and Marketing at Adelbert’s Brewery.

“The Adelbert’s Brewery team is truly dedicated to the work we do in the community. Since 2015, they’ve donated over $8,000 for BCRC services,” said Ray Anne Evans, BCRC Executive Director.  “Their passion for our shared cause is evident not only in the funds they’ve raised, but also in their decision to put our organization’s name on every can of their Hibiscus Saison. To me, that says a lot about a company’s commitment to our mission. Their investment will go a long way to help improve the lives of local women with breast cancer. For that, we are tremendously grateful.”

In line with its commitment to supporting the local community, the brewery donated to over 100 non-profits in 2016. In 2017, the brewery also plans to introduce a canned blonde ale to support coastal conservation associations.
