Weyerbacher Riserva 2011–Bottling Today!

imageJust thought you’d want an update on the progress of 2011 Weyerbacher Riserva and it’s good news….looks like out pal Chris Wilson and the guys are bottling it TODAY!  This from Weyerbacher:

Hello fellow sour fans! Today’s the day we’ve all been waiting for! The fourth generation of RISERVA, our American Wild Ale with Raspberries is FINALLY being bottled! As I type this, our brand spankin’ new bottling line and all or cellarman are hard at work putting this wonderful beer into cork and cage bottles 750 ml bottles (like a champagne bottle). The beer will not be ready for a few weeks…. or maybe even a few months…. bottle conditioning a beer this high in alcohol and this sour takes some time—Please be patient! We promise you a great evening engagement (and lots of social and logistic efficiency) once we know when the beer will be ready! Yes, this beer WILL be available in stores! Stay tuned for more Riserva 2011 updates!

Check out this short video we’ve made for you! Here is the last Riserva update, posted August 15th and here is the story from when the bottling line arrived from Bavaria on November 14th!
