Lost Abbey Red Poppy coming soon
The official release is February 12th, but don't expect the appearance of bottles quite that quickly. Lost Abbey announced full distribution though. This is a Flanders-Style Red Ale (sour and fruity), made with sour cherries and aged in French Oak barrels for a year. Available in 375ml bottles (half a bottle of wine) and pretty easy drinking at 5% ABV, this will go great with early spring meals where a sour fits your food profile, and will also be refreshing on days when it finally gets warm (if Chicagoans can hold onto their bottles long enough).
