While craft beer has long been a measurable force on the beer market, sour-style ales are now emerging as breweries explore new styles to broaden their consumer base. Heavy Seas Beer is leveraging the increasingly popular sour ale consumer demographic with the launch of the Red Flag, a barrel-aged sour ale.
Heavy Seas Beer's new Red Flag is crafted with wild yeast and bacteria and pays homage to the tart, dry Sour Red and Brown ales of Flanders. The ale boasts a blend of six different sour beer batches that were aged in four different styles of barrels. Red Flag features a dynamic and tart flavor profile with notes of sweet malt tones and fruit undertones, resulting in a unique and unprecedented palate experience.
