Very Seldom Naughty times three.

Located about a third of the way on the journey from San Antonio to Austin, Texas craft beer maker New Braunfels Brewing Company has announced the release of three blends of a sour beer made from its Blondine, sour Hefeweizen.

Blondine is a wheat beer brewed with 85% white wheat and pilsner malt. After primary fermentation it is aged in barrels with a rotating selection of Texas white wine lees from Texas wineries.

The lees are yeast and sediment that falls out of suspension when the winery stabilizes the wine prior to bottling. Much of the flavor, aroma and nuances of the wine are still present and that’s the flavor that is infused into the beer. Each new release highlights the unique characteristics of the grapes and the winemakers who crafted their wines with them.

The Blends

Blend3 — Aged in barrels with Muscat and Albarino lees from Hilmy Cellars near Stonewall, TX. This release consisted of only 12 cases of 750ml bottles and a few 5gl kegs.

Blend4 — Aged in barrel with Rose lees from William Chris Vineyards in Hye, TX. This release consisted of only 18 cases of 750ml bottles and a few 5gl kegs.

Blend5 — Aged in barrel with Vermentino lees from William Chris Vineyards in Hye, TX. This release consisted of only 12 cases of 750ml bottles and no kegs.

Releases for blends 3 and 4 to distributors around Texas will begin selectively next week, for blend 5, the week of July 17.


Turning Craft is the show that’s converting the world to craft beer, one drinker at a time.
