Description: The Almanac Beer Company was founded in 2010 by Jesse Friedman and Damian Fagan, and is best known for their barrel aged sours, such as their Farmers Reserve, Brettaville and Hoppy Sour series – sour and wild beers that combine oak aging and the bounty of California farms to create complex flavors and aromas. In addition, Almanac also produces Fresh Beer now available in cans, highlighting hoppy and bright flavors in San Francisco IPA, Saison Dolores, Craft Pilsner and citrus-laden Mandarina Farmhouse Ale. Farm-to- barrel brewing is about selecting the best in locally sourced fruit and blending it into beers inspired by the great brewing traditions of the world.
