Silver City Brewery of Bremerton has released Le Fat 2014~ Oak Barrel Aged Belgian Sour Scotch Ale. Le Fat 2014 ~ Oak Barrel Age Belgian Sour Scotch Ale will be sold in 750ml cork finished bottles.
Le Fat production began immediately following the brewery's move to Bremerton four years ago. The beer is based on one of Silver City's most popular and award winning beers, Fat Scotch Ale. The beer was fermented with Belgian yeast, inoculated with Lactobacillus, Pediococcus and Brettanomyces and aged in used Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet barrels.
Le Fat 2014 is the second generation of the original batch started in 2010.
"Le Fat is quite the labor of love for me and the brew team," said Don Spencer, brewmaster for Silver City Brewery. "There are so many components, steps and time that go into the process of creating Le Fat. To see Le Fat in it's beautiful bottle prepared for presentation after the long development process is personally very exciting. We can't wait to share this unique creation with our fans."
Le Fat will go on sale Friday at the Silver City Brewery Taproom in Bremerton & Silver City Restaurant in Silverdale. Quantities are limited. The 750ml cork finished bottle will be $19.99. Silver City Taproom will offer a limited amount on draft for tasting starting on March 7 as well.
