Like the soulful melody of a song that you can’t stop singing, 21st Amendment Brewery has brought back its mind-blowing summertime sour, Watermelon Funk.

This limited-edition Insurrection Series beer is brewed with 100% fresh watermelon puree, kettle soured with lactobacillus for bright, tart, citrus notes, and entices your palate with the spicy farmhouse aroma of its French Saison yeast strain. A transformation of the brewery’s summertime favorite, Hell or High Watermelon Wheat, this beer turns up the dial at 6.7% ABV and a Funk Factor of 11.

“I first made this beer in 2004 when Vinnie Cilurzo, co-founder of Russian River Brewing Company, and I decided to funkify Hell or High Watermelon Wheat in a chardonnay barrel. The entire process took about two years but the result was something right out of a James Brown song. We’ve evolved the process since then by kettle souring the beer and fermenting it with a saison yeast strain, which has only enhanced its soulful street cred.”
– Shaun O’Sullivan, Co-Founder and Brewmaster of 21st Amendment Brewery
