The Bronze Burro is a specialty beer with a lot going on. Inspired by a Moscow Mule we wanted a serious beer and cocktailesqe hybrid. The brew gets its distinct Moscow Mule notes by starting with a light base beer that is kettle-soured to give it a tart, tangy edge. From there we add loads of lime and ginger to hammer home the flavor you expect to find with a nice little burro kick!
German brewing scientist, Otto Francke, developed what was to become known as the Francke acidification process which allowed the traditional mixed-culture Berliner Weiss methods to be sped up and more consistent; this is also known as kettle souring. Many modern commercial sour beer examples use this method for rapid production, and as an alternative to complex barrel production.
