About MAFKA Barrel-Aged Sour Ale by Arbor Brewing Company

The staves were then pitched into a vat of specially blended beer (58% Khatta Kala Sour Stout, 36% Hothaus Harvest Ale, 6% Velvet Hammer) and left to age for 18 months. The results proved to be wildly successful (pun intended!). The scent of rich, black cherries on the nose carries through to a delicate mouthfeel on the palette, and a mild, sweet-tart finish with newly unleashed oak tannins.


We have been a pioneer in the craft beer industry since opening our brewpub in downtown Ann Arbor in 1995.
