Masia Agullons - Runa Brown Ale
Serving Temperature:45-50° F
Suggested Glassware:Dimpled Mug or Pint Glass
Overall, there’s a lot of flavor in this 5% ABV beer, yet it remains at all times balanced and poised. Finding such good beer, especially from a tiny farmhouse in the Catalonian countryside, is quite a discovery. Runa Brown Ale has been in the U.S. once before, when a small amount was first brought in from Masia Agullons. It vanished quickly. The importers (Shelton Brothers) then waited at least six months for a follow up shipment. We took all but about 20 cases (around 240 bottles) of the sophomore round. Due to the extremely small output of the brewery, you can bet it’s going to be quite some time before any more gets to the states. Our members not only get most of the current U.S. supply, they will also receive their bottles of Runa 4-6 weeks before those 20 cases hit the U.S. market—so, enjoy your bottles of rare, rural Catalonian farmhouse beer—we know we will.
As far as aging, we don’t recommend going beyond 3-5 months; even though the bottle conditioning will allow the beer to mature for some time, this beer is amazing in its youth—and it’s already aged a bit beneath the brewery before it left on its lengthy journey to get to our members. So go for it.
