VIVIAN
|| /vɪviˈɛn/ viv-ee-EN  ||
Much in the same way a caterpillar transforms into a butterfly, Vivian (Latin; alive) has developed through a variety of stages to arrive at her current state. The grist consists of under modified pilsner malt, malted wheat, and flaked oats, building the foundation of a traditional Saison. Fermented and aged in French Oak California Chardonnay barrels with English ale yeast, wild yeast, and bacteria for 10 months, Vivian gradually evolved into what it is today. Vivian is alive and will continue to transform inside the bottle.

UNITE EXPRESSION BOTTLE RELEASE

BOTTLE RELEASE THIS SATURDAY
Unite Expression IWCBD 2016 || 750ml || $15 ea.
Barrel Aged American Wild Ale w/ Hibiscus Petals & Sea Salt
5.7% ABV || 11.5 g/L TA

International Women's Day, March 8th, is also the International Women's Collaboration Brew Day for female brewers, both professional and home. Each year unitebrew.org introduces a different brew to encourage collaboration and unity across the globe. The brew for 2016 titled "Unite Expression" was developed to educate, encourage enrichment and to allow all participants to express their individual brewing styles and skill sets.

Our IWCBD Unite Expression wild ale was inspired by the Hawaiian value "Laulima" (many hands working together) incorporating the Hawaiian hibiscus flower petals along with native La Jolla sea salt. Aged in wine barrels for 10 months, it is reminiscent of a Gose style ale with just a hint of salinity and floral essence alongside hints of Brett character & light oak.

The first release in our new cork/cage format, these bottles will be available online and in the tasting room starting this Saturday at 12pm PST. Orders placed online will be available for pickup (proxies allowed) same-day and up to 30 days. Proxies are allowed and must be listed in NOTES section of online shopping cart. All orders are also available for shipment within the state of CA via Golden State Overnight. Shipments will be processed Tues 4/25 and arrive Wed 4/26. Adult 21+ signature required for delivery. Residential and Business delivery available.

Help us raise awareness for IWCBD and their continued efforts to bring women of beer together! Cheers!

SAISON TROUBADOUR BOTTLE RELEASE

SAISON TROUBADOUR
BA French Saison || 6.5% ABV

SAISON TROUBADOUR
Across the centuries, from rural France to West Hollywood, lyrical poets have encouraged their listeners to discuss and question the world around them. Through their poignant and sometimes controversial compositions they provoke conversation and spark invention. Modern poets such as Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, and many others have continued this long held tradition of storytelling. 

Through collaboration and discussion we gladly present Troubadour, a French Saison consisting of barley and wheat, fermented with saison yeast and Brettanomyces bruxellensis var. drie for 4 months in Hungarian oak Chardonnay barrels and refermented in this bottle for an additional 4 months. Enjoy. Share. Discuss. Continue the tradition.

APPEARANCE: Straw, medium lingering head.
AROMA: Hay, lemon zest, orange peel, floral Brettanomyces, mild vanilla and slight almond. 
FLAVOR: Complex. Vanilla, oak, coconut, candied lemon and oranges with straw intermingle with a spritzy effervescence. High carbonation brings about a tingling mineral character that plays nicely with the Brettanomyces and pilsner malt tones.

TRUTH FROM HEART BOTTLE RELEASE

TRUTH FROM HEART
Barrel Fermented & Aged Saison w/ Fresh CA White Nectarines
7.1% ABV || 13.1 g/L TA || 750ml || $22ea (Limit 6)

Available online via our webstore @ 12pm PST or in-house @ 3pm. Limited quantities. While supplies last.

Artists have always used symbolism as a way to express ideas through their work. Scholars have suggested that artists would use nectarines to depict the heart and a leaf to represent the tongue. Combining these two elements was their way of illustrating the romantic notion of speaking truth from the heart. This beer is our attempt to pay homage to this concept through the art and science of brewing. 

We started with Milk the Funk Collaboration #2 Saison base and fermented it with our house microbes. We aged it for 5 months in French Oak Pinot barrels before adding 4 pounds of fresh California White Nectarines per gallon and refermented in the bottle for 4 months.

Poinsettia, a small shrub with bright flaming red leaves, known to some as the christmas star. To most as the symbol that the holiday season is upon us. Here at Toolbox, it's the name of our street. The second in our annual Poinsettia Holiday Ale series, Poinsettia 2016 is inspired by a traditional holiday favorite, the fruit cake. Rich in fruits, nuts, liqueur and spice, the cake improves with age, much like this beautifully balanced and delicious holiday ale. Enjoy this holiday season or age for the ones to come. Cheers & Happy Holidays!
