Murex is a blend of six beers aged in oak wine barrels ranging in age from 4-16 months and conditioned with honey. This blend was created to showcase a pretty mild acidity and natural seedy flavor that could both be enhanced by the natural character of the berries. We used whole organic boysenberries at 2 pounds per gallon, which gives the beer a very deep purple color. Murex has an insane amount of fruit flavor and aroma, while somehow still showcasing the underlying beer that’s hidden in there somewhere. Our blending has been trying to shift towards making beers that punch you in the face with flavor, but that you can still drink a whole glass of without wanting to die, and which still has layers of complexity that can only be uncovered by a slow and methodical drinking approach, that lets the beer warm and reveal it’s secrets.
The Spiny Murex is a sea snail that has mucus that turns Tyrian Purple when dried. Mûre in French means blackberry, the close cousin of the boysenberry. Show Less
