The native Muisca people celebrated their king's coronation by covering their monarch in gold dust and bathing him in their sacred lake, turning him into El Hombre Dorado: the golden man. He became a king, who became a kingdom, who became a fabled city of gold. For centuries, explorers have pursued riches deep in the Amazon, only to come back bruised, broken and bankrupt. With our latest sour, we too aim to discover riches: the riches of a sour beer coupled with complimentary hop characteristics. Our kettle sour is dry hopped with El Dorado at the end of fermentation to capture the hop's watermelon and rockmelon aromatics, complimenting the tart and citrus base beer. Have a sip, and surrender yourself to the allure of El Agrio Dorado: the golden sour.
