Brett Noir 2019

Brett Noir 2019 – Brett Noir is fermented with pinot noir grapes and Brett Bruxellensis yeast, and then aged nine months in French Limousin Oak and American White Oak foudres sourced from two venerated Napa Valley vintners. It’s a complex, dramatic ale with mild, funky fruit and wine flavors that hits at 6.5%.



Ranked among some of the most sought after and respected sours in the United States, Area Two Experimental Brewing’s Brett Noir earns a 92 rating from Wine Enthusiast.

In its “Recommended Sour Beers To Try, 90 Points And Above,” Wine Enthusiast emphatically states, “The key to a well-made wild ale is balance. Forward sour, tart and fruity aromas and flavors produced by wild yeast strains and bacteria should be center stage, but not completely overwhelming. A malty core or rich fruit flavors should lend balance to the bright acidity and funky overtones. A pleasant, subtly tannic texture and dry finish, which also comes from oak aging, helps to round out the experience.”
