Mainer Weisse is a mixed fermentation sour ale aged with blueberries and cinnamon sticks. We released it for the first time in December 2012, and have kept this fan favorite in the (nearly) yearly rotation ever since.
Some flavor profiles are truly tied to time and place. For us, autumn in New England means blueberry pie from Maine. Hence, our fall sour is an ode to dripping tartness, to blue stains on our jeans, and the subtle spice of cinnamon.
First Released: 12/12/2012
WHAT IS MIXED FERMENTATION?
We sat down with Head Brewer Joe Mashburn and Microbiologist Katie Miller to discuss our mixed fermentation sour process, and the ingredients involved it in. Learn more about how we create our Weisse series, and why we're so excited to have these beers available in 16oz cans!
