Just in time to celebrate our nation’s Independence Day, The Commons Brewery will release Trillium on Thursday, July 3rd. Trillium is a new sour farmhouse ale brewed as part of the Beetje Series and will be released only at the brewery Tasting Room beginning at 5:00pm.
Trillium is a dry hopped blend of wine barrel aged farmhouse ales fermented with the brewery’s house farmhouse yeast, multiple strains of Brettanomyces and their house lactobacillus culture. The 50/50 blend is composed of a version of Urban Farmhouse ale in barrels with Brettanomyces Bruxellensis and multiple house grown cultures and a kettle soured farmhouse ale aged in barrels with Brettanomyces Bruxellensis and Brettanomyces Lambicus. The blend was then dry hopped with whole leaf meridian hops.
Having had the opportunity to taste Trillium today, we can say that this beer is one to seek out. The blend of beers used to bottle Trillium allows for a nice, yet refreshing sourness to the beer. Fairly priced at $15 per 750ml bottle, Trillium will also be available on draft in limited quantities on Thursday, the day of the release. This is an excellent way for you to try the beer prior to putting down $15 a bottle. We strongly feel that you will be impressed with this latest release from The Commons.
The beautiful label art for Trillium was created by Adam Burke, brother of Head Brewer Sean Burke. You can find more information about Adam Burke’s art at http://www.nightjarillustration.com.
The Beetje Series is a celebration of The Commons Brewery’s nano roots. First brewed in 2010 on a one-barrel system in Mike Wright’s garage, these small batch beers pay homage to the rustic brewery that continues to inspire us.
