Sour Symposium 9/15

$30 per ticket + tax

Ever tried a sour or wild beer? Not all sour beers are created the same, nor are they all technically "sour" in taste. Please join us in the Hickory Room at Wolf's Ridge on Saturday, September 15th from 5 PM to 7 PM for a private symposium all about these wild brews! This class begins with an open forum and in-depth discussion on sour styles, their origins and the methods by which they are produced. Following this, guests will be guided through a tasting with a number of beers from our sour, oak barrel-aged collection!

We will conclude the class with a tour of our brewery, including our ever expanding sour program: The Mangrove. The class may end at 7, but everyone is invited to stay and to enjoy a complimentary beer from our draft list (a beer token is included in the price of the class)!

5 Year Anniversary Party!

5 years ago on September 27th, 2013, we opened our doors for business. The ensuing years have seen unimaginable growth within the walls of our building. From the addition of the taproom in early 2015 and a full kitchen later that year, to a brewhouse expansion that included new 45 & 15 barrel tanks and a full barrel-aging sour program. By mid August we will have expanded one step further, completing renovation on a new dedicated events space, the Hickory Room. 

Please join us in celebrating 5 years of craft in the Columbus community all day on September 29th! While details are still coming together, you can expect an amazing blow out party hosted in both the Taproom and Hickory Room events space with great beer and food. We can confirm right now that we will have 75 draft beers available throughout the entire WRB building that day, our largest draft lists to date! We will also have a number of specialty bottles available for public sale (ticketed, first come first serve when doors open). Not all the available bottles have been finalized, but here are some confirmed on the lineup:

  • Bourbon Barrel Salted Chocolate Dire Wolf
  • Apple Brandy Wolfmann (Imperial Wheat stout)
  • Rye Barrel DEFCON (Barleywine)
  • High Banks (Oat IPA)

Stay tuned on additional bottle announcements, as we plan to add more including a couple of sours!

General Logistics:

We will form a line on E Hickory near the taproom garage door, where public entrance will be for the party. Doors will open at 10 am and guests will be handed a numbered ticket upon entry (dictates your spot in the bottle sale line). Both the Hickory Room events space and Taproom will be open at that time, so guests can filter and grab beers or food in whichever room they'd like once receiving their tickets!

Please check back in over the coming weeks and stay tuned for announcements as we flesh out final details, including: full bottle/draft/food lists, the early bird party (which will be held the evening before on Friday the 28th) and all logistics on the public bottle sale!

Cheers,

WRB

Red Legacy Bottle Release - Summer of Sours!

11:00 AM11:00

Red Legacy Bottle Release - Summer of Sours!

There are rumblings of a returning beer from down in our barrel-aged sour room, The Mangrove. Batch #2 of Red Legacy, our Flanders-Style sour red ale, is soon ready to emerge! Aged in oak barrels for nearly a year on a mixed culture of yeast and bacteria. Acidic yet malty and complex with notes of black cherry, red wine, bourbon, oak and chocolate.

Bottle conditioned, corked and caged per Belgium tradition. 750 ml bottles of Red Legacy will be available for public sale on August 4th, but you can head to the taproom now to try it on draft for a limited time! $19.99/3 bottle limit.

We've added an additional 3 bottles to the lineup, check out the special offerings available at this release:

  • Litany Against Fear: Smoked Sour Ale Collaboration with Little Fish Brewing Company ($12.99/6 bottle limit)

Fear is the mind-killer. Face your fear and let it pass through you so only beer will remain. This Lichtenhainer is a historic style from Germany brewed in collaboration with our friends at Little Fish following notes from a 19th century recipe. We used Ohio wheat and beechwood smoked barley from Germany. The beer was fermented with the water of life in oak barrels using a blend of each brewery's native mixed cultures and lactobacillus. Months later the changed waters have bright notes of pear, white grape, and apple with a mild sweet and savory smoke character and pleasing tartness.

 

  • Swimming in the Mangrove: Sour Ale Aged in Red Wine Puncheons ($14.99/6 bottle limit)

An oak barrel is a beautiful sight. It captures the essence of the natural ingredients used in brewing and alludes to our past. Our California red wine puncheons dwarf the standard barrels populating The Mangrove at Wolf's Ridge and are especially beautiful to behold. These puncheons only age our most unique and limited projects. After a year of maturation we find clean stone fruit acidity on the nose that compliments flavors of oak, cherry, caramel and tart apricot A wonderfully complex beer from a remarkable barrel.

 

  • Terre du Sauvage Green: Barrel-aged Farmhouse Sour, Dry-hopped with Whole Cone Ekuanot ($12.99/3 bottle limit)

Batch # 3 is ready! Brewed with barley, wheat and rye, then fermented with a blend of Saison Yeast, Brett and Lactobacillus. Whole cone Ekuanot hops impart exceptionally juicy orchard fruit notes of pear, apple and peach.

 

First come first serve for the bottle sale, which begins at 11am when we open the taproom. Full draft list to be posted soon, stay tuned!

Taproom 3-year Anniversary Bottle Release Party

Keep your Saturday open on January 27th! We have new beers making their first appearance in 22 oz bottles: Barleywine and BA Barleywine! Along for the ride are some retuning fan-favorite infusions, check out the updated bottle list below.

 

***We will not be hosting any early bird pre-sale party for this release. Doors will open at 10 am to the general public and the bottle sale will begin at 11 am first come, first serve (numbered tickets will be handed out upon entry to the Taproom, dictating your place in the line for the bottle sale). Our kitchen and bar will be open right at 10 am!***

 

Bottle List:

-Nippert- (allotment of 4 per person) $12.99

English Barleywine, 12.4%

We brew our English Barleywine to be layered with deep flavors. The finest imported barley is used and the wort is caramelized in the kettle before a grueling 4 hour boil. Bold and full bodied with flavors of toffee, caramel, toasted biscuits, fig, and raisin. A "nippert" is a small portion - which is all you need of a big beer like this!

 

-Lil' Nippert- (allotment of 3 per person) $18

Barrel Aged Barleywine, 11%

Barrel: Watershed Bourbon

After a year of aging in barrels Nippert emerges bigger and more complex than before. Wonderful notes of oak and honey are imparted by the barrel, layering atop our English Barleywine's caramel, toffee, and biscuity profile. A "lil' nippert" is all you need -but a full glass if what you'll want!

 

-Lil' Nibbert- (allotment of 2 per person) $20

Barrel Aged Barleywine, 11%

Barrel: Watershed Bourbon

We've taken our Barrel Aged Barleywine Lil' Nippert and added the finest English Earl Grey tea along with gourmet Haitian cacao nibs. Lovely aromas of bourbon and honey interplay with subtle chocolate and bright citrusy Bergamot. The flavor is even more complex with black tea and dark chocolate truffle notes alongside rich toffee, caramel, raisin, and biscuit.

 

-Dire Wolf One Line- (allotment of 6 per person) $12.99

One Line Coffee infused imperial stout, 10.4%

 

-All the Breakfast- (allotment of 6 per person) $14.99

Imperial breakfast cream ale (ABV TBD). Infused with orange peel, maple syrup, cacao nibs, toasted coconut, cinnamon and vanilla bean.

 

-Terre du Sauvage Green- (allotment of 4 per person) $12.99

Wild Heritage Series: dry-hopped farmhouse saison, 6%

 

Cheers,

 

WRB
