Scorched Earth Brewing Company is releasing Barrel No. 7, an Apple Cider and Spice Sour Ale, at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday. The beer, aged for more than a year in wine barrels, features apple cider from Royal Oak Farm Orchard in Harvard – a fall destination for families and apple aficionados.

Barrel No. 7 won a Gold Medal at the 2018 Los Angeles International Beer Competition.

Scorched Earth is also releasing a complimentary beer, Barrel No. 12, a farmhouse sour with a blend of Royal Oak’s apple cider and St. Pepin grapes grown on a family vineyard in Marengo.

A third beer will be available too in limited amounts – a chocolate mole inspired stout, featuring cocoa nibs from Woodstock’s own Ethereal Confections.

“We couldn’t be more excited to release these beers at this time of year," said Jennifer Dallas, Co-owner of Scorched Earth. "We hope to continue to highlight some of the things we love about our home – McHenry County - through our beers.”

The Los Angeles International Beer Competition is in its 18th year and hosted over 230 breweries earlier this year. Hailing from across the United States and beyond, breweries submitted more than 1,300 entries. Each year, a panel of judges use a blind tasting method to award medals to the best beers from around the world, maintaining the highest standards of integrity and professionalism. Scorched Earth also won a gold medal for its Fur Trader Bier de Garde, and three medals the previous year.
