GATHERING 2022 MIXED BOTTLE SET
GATHERING BLUEBERRIES & BLACKBERRIES began with a carbonic maceration of 600 pounds of berries from Pastore Orchards in Hammonton, NJ. This made a delectable berry wine that we enjoyed on its own before selecting and adding a blend of barrel-aged stock: roughly 50% year-old golden sour base and 50% year-old barrel-aged brett beer. Pouring a beautiful red-purple hue, Gathering B&B has a vivid, jammy fruit character. Tannic blueberry skins are balanced with a bright fruit acidity, resulting in complex drinkability. 6% ABV
GATHERING STONE FRUIT began as a melange of carbonically macerated fresh ripe local fruits: Baby Gold peaches, Hargrand apricots, and red plums. These fruits came from Bittner Singer Orchards in Appleton, NY. To this maceration, we added a blend of mixed culture golden sour barrels and barrel-aged saison. The stone fruits bring a range of big juicy flavors and contribute a bright acidity. A luscious treat, Gathering Stone Fruit is also the most assertively tart beer in this year's Gathering crop. 6% ABV
GATHERING MERLOT is extremely special to us––we started this beer one year ago with a whole-cluster fermentation of Merlot grapes from our friend, and Staten Island Ferry Captain, John Viviano's vineyard on Long Island. We blended 1 year-old sour beer with the grapes and then let it rest in the bottle for an additional year! Time has been VERY good to this beer, and unexpected esters of passionfruit have developed alongside the expected plummy, jammy merlot flavors. 6% ABV
GATHERING BLUEBERRIES, RED CURRANTS & NECTARINES is a highlight of this year's Gathering crop. Pouring a luminous magenta, this beer features hyperreal, vivid aromas of currants, berries, and juicy stone fruit. On the palate it is complex with a perfect balance of soft acids from fruits and fermentation, bretty notes of spicy funk, and light accents of oak. Sublime! These fruits came to us whole, ripe, and fresh from Samascott Orchards, Tousey Farms, and Bittner-Singer Orchards respectively. 6% ABV

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do you only ship beer to certain states?
It’s not legal for us to ship to every state.
Do I need to be home to receive my beer order? What if I'm away?
Yes, beer orders require an adult signature upon delivery.
If you are not home, UPS will make multiple delivery attempts. If you are not home on the third attempt, they will send your order back to the brewery. You can receive either a full refund, or we can re-ship your order but you will be charged again for shipping.
Can I return my beer?
No, we don't offer returns. If your beer was damaged in transit, please file a claim with UPS by clicking this link. Please note that you will be asked to provide ample photo documentation of the damaged package.
When can I expect to receive my order?
We're only shipping on Monday and Tuesday. If you’re ordering beer, you should receive it within 2 days unless there are any carrier delays. Reference your UPS tracking number, not the ETA that Shopify will send, for a better idea of when you'll receive your order. If you have ordered merch, we’ll either ship with UPS or USPS - if we can combine it with your beer, we will, but that won’t always be possible. You’ll receive a tracking number either way! Labels are printed before the items are picked up, so the tracking page may not yet give a location. This doesn't mean we aren't shipping your order! It just means we're getting your order ready.
