Locavore Summer 2023 is a delicious Raspberry Sour brewed with local Wicklow Raspberries.

For our annual Locavore Summer release, we look to the Wicklow landscape for flavours that allow us to champion the local terroir. Wicklow raspberries were sourced from the Conroy Family in Rocky Valley, Kilmacanogue. The Conroy’s have been growing and harvesting delicious raspberries locally for over forty years. Grown just 13km from the brewery, these raspberries impart a taste of the Wicklow hills into this beer, providing it with beautiful fruity and tart flavours.

On brew day we took in a delivery of freshly picked raspberries which were used immediately in the brewing process. Added directly into tank, the berries were mixed with hot wort which helped to help break down the raspberries. This mix of wort and raspberries was then added straight into the fermentation tank. From here, the flavours and aromas would further develop during fermentation.

Our Locavore Project epitomises the core philosophy that Wicklow Wolf was founded upon, provenance and pride. The Locavore Project celebrates the terroir of Wicklow, our home and champion it with small batch, local, experimental beers.
