Beer of the Week: Dollar Bill ‘Learning to Breathe’ Wild Barrel Aged Golden Sour

Mixed-fermentation barrel-aged sour beer – it’s a pretty special (not to mention delectable) category of the brewing world, and it’s one that the folks at Dollar Bill Brewing in Ballarat have thoroughly carved a niche for themselves in.

Their latest release ‘Learning to Breathe’, is brewed with Pilsner (65%), Wheat (25%), and Crystal Rye (10%) malts prior to fermentation and ageing in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay barrels. This golden sour has a round mouthfeel with a hint of brettanomyces and a deep lactic acidity that intertwines beautifully with the vinous notes from ageing in wine barrels. Complex, sour, delicious!
