MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Third Space Brewing in Milwaukee is releasing Red, White and Blue beers just in time for the July 4 holiday.
The barrel-aged sour beers will be released both on tap and in bottles at an event on June 30.
The "Red" has been aged in Pinot Noir, Oloroso Sherry and Tawny Port barrels with cherries and raspberries added. The "White" has aged in California Chardonnay and French Sauternes barrels with apricots and peaches added. The "Blue" has aged in Brandy, Pinot Noir and Port/Bourbon barrels with blueberries and blackberries added.
Sales will begin at 11 a.m. on June 30 with a limit of one set of three bottles per person. Bottles sets will cost $60 and will be cash only sales.
Here are full details from Third Space for those wishing to purchase the limited edition set:
Red, White, & Blue will be sold both on draft and in sets of 750ml bottles (one of each beer per set). Bottle Sets will be $60 ($20 per 750ml bottle). On release day, bottles may only be purchased in a 3 bottle set of each beer. Bottle sales are CASH ONLY (an ATM will be on site).
Bottle sales will begin and our tap room will open at 11:00 a.m. on June 30, 2018. The bottle set limit is tentatively placed at 1 set of 3 bottles per person but may be increased at release time depending on how many people are waiting in line. A limited number of boxes will be available to transport bottles so bringing your own bag/box is always a good idea.
If you arrive before 11:00, please form an orderly queue and stay on our property (inside the gate). We will not be giving out wristbands for this release. We will check IDs as you enter the brewery for the bottle sale. We will announce the bottle count and the purchase limit prior to the release time so you can gauge whether your place in line will net you bottles.
Hopefully everyone will get bottles that arrives prior to the release but we can never guarantee this. We encourage you to arrive early to ensure you obtain bottles. Customers are permitted to get in line for a second time after purchasing bottles to buy an additional allotment if supplies are available.
All 3 beers will be on draft throughout the day. We will have food trucks onsite as well to keep you fed.
