Captain Lawrence Rosso E Marrone

On January 29, 2009, we announced that Captain Lawrence would be releasing their long awaited Rosso e Marrone. Well, we finally tasted it and it did not disappoint. Here is the original post as well as our review.

Captain Lawrence Releases Rosso e Marrone!

We will finally be releasing the Rosso e Marrone!It has been a long journey for this beer to finally see the light of day…..

Over two years in oak wine barrels and then an additional 6 months in the bottle before it finally decided it was time. This is a sour ale, very different from most beers. The flavors are wine like and a bit funky. The two years in the oak barrels have imparted a nice dry oak character. We added both zinfandel and Merlot grapes to the beer a year into its aging which imparted a very nice wine like character.

The specifics….

Release Date: February 14th, 12:00pm
Production: 700 bottles (375ml)
Cost: $10 / bottle – CASH SALE ONLY
Limit: 4 per customer

This beer will be sold on a first come first serve basis….we will not save, pre-sell or reserve bottles for anyone, so please don’t ask.

Thanks for all your support and we look forward to an exciting 2009.
