Each participating brewery was invited to produce its own distinct beer-wine hybrid, but with three binding stipulations: they all had to use the same grain bill; the same methodology of handling the grapes (when possible); and the same co-fermented percentage of wort (51%) and red wine grapes (49%) fermented with wild flora— “this is where we embrace the absolute soul of the vineyard,” Crooks said. The kicker: all grapes had to be grown within 100 miles of each brewery.

“The Terroir Project is all about blurring the genres of beer and wine to explore how ‘terroir’—or sense of place—drives what we taste,” said Jim Crooks, master blender at Firestone Walker’s Barrelworks.

Terroir Quatre features a base beer composed of 49% Cinsault grapes, picked 10 miles from the brewery at Curtis Vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley AVA. After carbonic maceration and spending 9 months in French oak barrels with native Flora from Curtis Vineyard, Terrior Quatre finishes at 9.3% alcohol by volume.
