Burdock Brewery Brings Back Meube Red Grape Ale

TORONTO, ON – Burdock Brewery has announced the return of a limited edition beer-wine hybrid.

Meube (9.9% abv):

Meube is a blend of sour red beer, barrel aged in neutral oak barriques for one year, then aged on heaps of destemmed Merlot skins for 60 days, and blended with a splash of Cab Franc at bottling. We’re calling this beer “Flanders-inspired” but it’s lighter / less acetic and drier than many beers of the style.

Meube is a little bit malt forward (very malt forward for a Burdock beer), but the malty sweetness ties in nicely with the dried blueberry character of the Merlot skins. Expect notes of superb sour cherry pie, perfect plum galette, and big juicy nasty candied grapes.

Meube is available now at the Burdock retail store and online shop.
