FORT COLLINS, CO— Funkwerks celebrates Spring in full swing with an array of sour beers packed full of funk and fruit. Now available on draft and select packaging, Funkwerks’ Provincial series, an ongoing lineup of sour fruit beers, currently includes Apricot, Pineapple, Passion Fruit, and Raspberry Provincial— all of which are included in the breweries latest version of their in-house Sour Snack Pack flight.
Brewed utilizing a unique 24-hour warm souring technique using lactobacillus in the wort and featuring rotating fruit additions, Funkwerks’ Provincial series is part of the brewery’s Boutique Line and are available in bottles and draft in limited runs.
Raspberry Provincial is available year-round across the brewery’s 13 state distribution footprint in 6 packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft. Raspberry Provincial was the beer to first kick off the series as a delicious creation that was truly a product of creativity, ingenuity, and luck. In the summer of 2013 Funkwerks took a test batch of their sessionable sour summer ale, Provincial, that didn’t quite hit gravity and decided to have some fun with it by adding a heavy dose of raspberries. The end result was so delicious, the brewery ended up brewing it year-round, to this day. This delightfully tart fruit beer is refreshing, with notes of lemon, bright raspberries, and a citrusy berry aroma which transitions to a subtly sweet and tart finish.
Passion Fruit Provincial is available on draft in the taproom and in very limited amounts outside of Colorado. In 12 oz. bottles it is only available in Funkwerks’ latest version of their variety 12 packs, Winky’s Snack Pack. This beer is full of tropical fruit flavors and bright aromatics. Beginning with the classic light, sessionable, sour ale, Funkwerks added fresh passion fruit to play off of their Belgian yeast’s naturally occurring fruity esters and contribute additional tartness. Transport yourself to sunny days and good times with this tropical, refreshing beer packed with notes of mango and tart citrus.
Apricot Provincial, available on draft at the brewery’s tasting room, is Funkwerks’ sessionable Belgian-style sour ale with a citrusy apricot aroma that transitions into a subtly sweet and tart finish.
Pineapple Provincial is now available in 6 packs of 12-ounce bottles across Colorado and on draft in select markets across Funkwerks’ distribution footprint including Colorado, Southern California, Minnesota, and Missouri. Good for more than just alliteration, Pineapple Provincial is a tart, light-bodied, tropical beer with notes of lemon zest and pineapple that give the apricot and raspberry variants of the Provincial series a run for their money.
The fun doesn’t stop at the liquid. For those who want more, Funkwerks has created a line of funky and sour bacteria-inspired merchandise available in the tasting room and online at Winky’s Warehouse online store at funkwerks.com, including:
