Mousetrap Double Release
Saturday, December 15, 11am

Reservations live on this page at noon on Monday, December 10

Bottles of Reine Des Renards and Fox in the Snow will not be distributed, so if you want to guarantee yourself a stash we suggest making release reservations when they go live on this page at noon on Monday the 10th. Sign up for 11am, 12pm, or 1pm. Sales open to the general public at 2pm. Limits will be announced based on turnout.

Release Day Surprises! We have twenty five hand-printed Reine Des Renards prints for sale. AND! We’ll have some new Off Coloring pages for ‘ya!

About Reservations:

  • One reservation per person, so please leave the reservation "Quantity "at "1." You can make reservations for friends or family by increasing that number, but you must provide their full name in the "Comments" box of the checkout form or email us if you forget.

  • Choose the hour that works best for you on December 15th: 11am, 12pm, or 1pm. You can show up at any point during that hour to purchase your allotment, no need to lineup.

  • We often get asked if friends can tag along. Of course they can! But if they want an allotment of bottles, they'll need a reservation.

  • Limits will be announced based on attendance.

Reserve Now!

Reine Des Renards

Flemish Blonde style ale fermented in a Calvados foedre with raw apple cider
and native yeasts

8.3% abv
$20 / 750mL bottles To Go
$9 / 8oz draft at Mousetrap

Flemish Blonde (similar in nature to the more widely known Flemish Reds) fermented for five months in a 14 year old French Calvados foedre with our wild yeasts. Then refermented for six more months with 900 liters of raw apple cider (Northern Pippen, Northern Spy, and Golden Delicious), unpasteurized to preserve their native flora. And pressed by our good friend, Ryan Burk, who you’ll probably recognized as that devastatingly handsome lumberjack, hipster looking guy from all those Angry Orchard commercials.


Fox in the Snow

Barolo foedre aged Kriek
with Montmorency and Balaton cherries

8.4% abv
$13 / 375mL bottles To Go (new format!)
$9 / 8oz draft

A shock of red as if glimpsing a fox dart into the forest’s edge, bursting with it’s namesakes unbridled wild edge and vinous tannin from an 11 month rest in one of our Barolo foedre then refermented for a further two months with cherries.
