Schlafly’s From The Ibex Cellar: Sour Blonde Ale

Schlafly Beer announces the upcoming release of the next beer in the brewery’s From the Ibex Cellar series: Sour Blonde Ale (5%). The premium collection features six bold, hand-crafted beers, and the Sour Blonde Ale is a citrus sour through the lens of an American Blonde Ale. The four-pack will be available across Schlafly’s distribution in limited quantities beginning on Monday, May 7.

The Sour Blonde Ale is kettle soured with lactobacillus and aged on oak chips before the final blending. The American ale yeast adds a clean finish for the beer. “This is a sour that you’ll want to write home about,” Founding Brewer Stephen Hale says. “With low bitterness and the mixed fermentation, the Sour Blonde Ale is fruity, tart and complex. It’s understated, but also unexpected.”

The From the Ibex Cellar series showcases the brewing ingenuity that began in the Schlafly Tap Room’s Ibex Cellar many years ago and continues today. Previous releases this year included: Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout, Imperial Coffee Stout and Local Oak with plans for two more barrel-aged offerings throughout the rest of the year.

Schlafly’s From The Ibex Cellar: Sour Blonde Ale will be available for a limited release beginning on Monday, May 7 across Schlafly’s distribution footprint for a suggested retail price $17.99.
