Sticky When Wet is as fresh and sticky as it can possibly get!

Dry-hopped with three pounds per barrel of Citra and Mosaic. Fun fact: these hops are shipped overnight to us from the west coast as soon as they are picked and we use them within an hour or two of receiving. Talk about fresh.
- Friday, October 9th. “Momo” – Oak Aged Peach Farmhouse Ale Bottle Release. Town Brewing Company. 2 pm.
Oak Aged Farmhouse Ale with Peaches
6.1%After fermentation with Norwegian kviek yeast and Lactobacillus bacteria, this golden ale was transferred into red wine barrels for aging, undergoing refermentation with Brettanomyces clausenii for added funk and complexity. The resulting farmhouse ale was rested on locally grown peaches, producing a beautiful bouquet of aromas and soft acidity balanced by pleasant oak tannins. Momo was an exercise in patient artisanship, crafted for thoughtful enjoyment. Momo will be released at our taproom on Friday October 9th in 375ml bottles beginning at 2pm.-$8.99 per bottle-
