Fair State

Lactobac

Size

Mixed Culture Sour | 6.1% ABV | 18% IBU

Details

This iteration of LACTOBAC is modeled after Biere de Garde, a French style traditionally brewed for the colder months. We've added elements of acidity and funk via our house mixed culture blend, but the maltiness and warmth from the original remains. Intensively decoction-mashed to provide toasty, round, bready flavors that temper the acidity of the beer. AMBER SOUR BEER INSPIRED BY BIERE DE GARDE: MALTY, WARMING, BUT IN THIS CASE ALSO QUITE ACIDIC & FUNKY.

Brewery

Fair State

Opened in September 2014, Fair State is the first brewery in Minnesota to use a cooperative business model, and only the third in the country. The brewery is actually owned by coop members. Members enjoy voting rights, the opportunity to serve on the cooperative board of directors, special discounts and beer release access, and a number of other perks. The art gallery-like taproom features a large number of rotating taps, including the tasty, sour, LÄCTOBÄC series beers.
