Almost empty cup of Alternate Takes #2 on top of a barrel.In the analog age of music, artists recorded take after take, experimenting with new sounds until a great record emerged. Our Alternate Takes series offers a peek into our iterative and creative R&D process, where each batch is celebrated as its own off-centered hit.

Alternate Takes #2 began with Raison D’Etre being end-fermented in a tank with a Belgian Abbey yeast. Then we transferred it to single-use red wine barrels, where we added Syrah grape must and brettanomyces. The result is a wild sour ale with a deep, dark and complex flavor.
