Creek

Golden Sour w. Cherries

1/27/2021

Inspired by the sour cherry fruited lambics of Belgium, Creek is a golden sour beer that utilizes whole Balaton and Montmorency cherries. While the Balaton cherries are used to provide a dark and rich cherry character, the Montmorency cherries provide a bright tang to keep the flavors balanced. With its alluring red hue and fragrant fruity aromatics, Creek is a stunning interpretation of one of our favorite beer styles.⠀
