Carmen

Carmen is the affectionate name we gave to a particular batch of sour brown ale that we laid to rest in a myriad of barrels.  After aging, a different fruit was added to each barrel and the variations were released at different times, often side by side, to see the effects of everything from cherries to guava to cranberries.

Food Pairing

Steak tartar, German chocolate cake, coffee ice cream.
