Until now, the only beer that Holy Mountain Brewing Company has released in bottles is The Third Nail, which was a special release for the Pine Box’s 3rd anniversary. This weekend, the brewery will release two beers that have frequently been pouring at the taproom: Ceremony and Silent Sun.
The bottles will be available when the brewery opens on Saturday, June 13 at 12pm. Both beers will be released in 750ml bottles, with the price being $15 for Silent Sun and $12 for Ceremony. The limit is 6 bottles per person, and there will be about 300 bottles total of each beer available.
To celebrate the occasion, the taproom will also be pouring Apricot Table, the first in a series of American Table Sours. This batch of Apricot Table was aged in oak barrels with a wild culture, then racked into an oak wine puncheon on top of apricots and allowed to age with additional brettanomyces. Holy Mountain’s Table Sours are intended to be easy drinking, moderate alcohol sours drawing inspiration from the German Berliner Weisse tradition of lacto and brett fermentations.
Personally, I’m quite excited to see Ceremony in bottles. It has become my go-to beer when visiting the Holy Mountain taproom. This assertively-hopped farmhouse pale ale is fermented 100% with brettanomyces and weighs in at 6% ABV. It’s fruity, a bit funky and nice and dry. Perfect for a sunny afternoon.
