Natalie Cilurzo of Russian River to attend Falling Rock tapping

Falling Rock Tap HouseOne of Denver's best beer bars has announced several upcoming tappings and events for early August. Below is an excerpt from Chris at Falling Rock and their most recent newsletter. Russian River's own Natalie Cilurzo will be on hand for a tapping celebration. Read on!

Thursday August 13th 5-7pm Russian River Temptation Release

Temptation: "Aged in French oak wine barrels for twelve months with distinct characteristics of fruit and subtle oak" sounds more like a description of wine than beer. However, Temptation is indeed beer. Temptation is a Blonde Ale aged in French oak chardonnay barrels with Brettanomyces. Flavors of wine and oak absorb into the brew throughout its aging. Temptation is re-fermented in the bottle to create its carbonation--a process commonly used to make fine champagne and sparkling wine. Spent yeast forms a thin layer of sediment to remain in the bottle. 7.25%ABV / 1.062 O.G.
