Two weeks ago we shared info about the limited, special release of two beers from Holy Mountain Brewing. Today, we’re doing it again. This Saturday, June 27th at its taproom in Seattle, Holy Mountain Brewing releases two more beers in bottles: The Goat and Choir of the Sun. They are both saisons, but they are not at all the same. See the press release below for details about each beer, including bottle limits.
To commemorate the occasion, Holy Mountain will tap into something special this Saturday. From the Holy Mountain Table series, Blackberry Table, a Table Sour aged in oak barrels with a wild culture, then racked into an oak wine puncheon on top of blackberries and allowed to age with additional brettanomyces. Along with that, Barrel Aged River of Ash will make its debut, a dark farmhouse ale fermented in a mix of third-use bourbon and wine barrels with cherries.
Here’s the official press release:
(Seattle, WA) Holy Mountain Brewing Company, located in Seattle’s Interbay neighborhood, is proud to announce the release of two new beers in bottles, including its first bottle available for distribution to retailers. The Goat and Choir of the Sun will both be released on Saturday, June 27th starting at 12pm at the Holy Mountain taproom located at 1421 Elliott Ave W in Seattle.
The Goat is a rustic brett saison. This batch was fermented in an oak foudre with several saison strains and brettanomyces, and allowed to age in the tank for three months. The Goat is brewed with barley, rye, oats, and wheat, and hopped heavily with European hops. The bottles were refermented with brettanomyces and allowed to condition for four months. 80 cases of The Goat were bottled, and it will be available both at the taproom and in limited distribution to local accounts.
Choir of the Sun is a saison which was fermented in an oak puncheon with several saisons strains and allowed to age with brettanomyces for six months. 39 cases of Choir of the Sun were bottled, and it will only be available at the Holy Mountain taproom.
Bottle limits of 1 case per person of The Goat and 6 bottles per person of Choir of the Sun. $15 each.
Two special new beers will be tapped to celebrate the occasion. Blackberry Table, a Table Sour which was aged in oak barrels with a wild culture, then racked into an oak wine puncheon on top of blackberries and allowed to age with additional brettanomyces. Holy Mountain’s Table Sours are intended to be easy-drinking, moderate alcohol sours drawing inspiration from the German berlinerweisse tradition of lacto and brett fermentations. In addition to Blackberry Table, Barrel Aged River of Ash will make its debut, a dark farmhouse ale fermented in a mix of third use bourbon and wine barrels with cherries. A single bourbon barrel of the beer was transferred into a wine barrel and allowed to age 5 months with brett.
