IMPERIAL SOUR BLONDE ALE AGED IN WINE BARRELS WITH MUSCAT GRAPES, PEACHES, NECTARINES & VANILLA BEANS

Splendid Population is our ode to the trailblazing spirit of the Golden State. The term was coined by Mark Twain in the late 1800s while traveling through California. Twain viewed the pioneers’ bold endeavors as, “magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness.” We created this adventurous beer-wine hybrid in that same intrepid spirit. Splendid Population is blended from select barrels of imperial sour blonde ale aged with muscat grapes, nectarines, peaches, and vanilla beans. Part wine, part beer and part autumn harvest—this brew is 100% California. Pair with roasted chicken dishes, fresh abalone, or peach ice cream.

“It was a Splendid Population – for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home – you never find that sort of people among pioneers – you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day – and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, “Well, that is California all over.”  – Mark Twain, Roughing It
