Cacaonut is a special treat.  A rare and secret blend of several different barrel aged beers that we’ve pulled from our cellar along with toasted coconut and cacao nibs from San Francisco’s TCHO.

The inspiration for this beer were the unique flavors of a chocolate dipped coconut macaroon.  After polishing off a few of those dense, sweet and delicious, coconut treats, Patrick started thinking through the flavor profiles of some of our favorite barrel aged beers, deciphering a way to replicate the luscious qualities of that favorite treat.  Spice, rich toffee, cocoa and tropical notes blend deliciously and delicately in this newest barrel aged addition to our collection.

Oude Tart is a Flemish-Style Red Ale aged in red wine barrels for 18 months.  It’s pleasantly sour with hints of leather, dark fruit and toasty oak.   While this is one of the more classic beer styles that we make, it’s not a style that you can find too often in the United States. Originating in style from the Flanders region of Belgium, near the French boarder, this dark, sour ale has roots deep in brewing history and predates most of the ales that have become popular in contemporary culture.  We’re doing our best to keep the tradition alive by brewing and aging this beer here on the west coast.

We seem to be doing quite well with continuing that great Belgian tradition of wild ales as this one is our most award winning beer, having won back to back gold medals at the World Beer Cup (2010 & 2012) in the Flanders Style Red Ale category and also a gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival in 2011.

**If you would like to get bottles of Oude Tart before 9/30, it will be available for purchase at the Tasting Room.  If you order through the website, it will NOT be available until this allocation window is closed**
