On the fourteenth day of Christmas

my beer store gave to me:

Stony Brook Red

Maharaja

Sour Ale/Wild Ale · 9.0 ABV · Brewed by Boston Beer Company

 

This unique brew defies traditional beer style definition. The rich, malty brew combines notes of tart fruit from the yeast with a toasty oak character from the barrel aging. The long dry finish is almost wine-like. This is a beer that is satisfying on its own and also pairs well with many foods such as braised or roasted meats, beef stews and strong salty cheeses.
