So in beer news today I was reading up on Ithaca Brute. Looks like the upstate NY brewery Ithaca Beer Company has put together a much anticipated sour ale called Brute 2010. I’ve only heard amazing things about the sour beer trend and I’m hoping this is a great place to start so I’ll be hunting this beer down in the NY/NJ area.
It looks like Ithaca will begin serving and shipping the beer this Friday July 30th, according to BeerNews.org. “Ithaca made 250 cases, half of which will be for sale at the brewery retail store with a one case limit per customer. The other half is being allocated to Ithaca’s local market, NYC, Boston and Philadelphia. Brute should be hitting shelves within a couple of weeks depending upon when each wholesaler takes their next load.”
