Violets Are Blue, our latest Calambic release

Violets Are Blue is the newest Calambic barrel aged sour beer to be introduced by High Water Brewing.  It will showcase the first in their new, updated label design for their barrel aged sour program.


While pursuing a MFA (Master of Fine Arts) degree in Graphic Design at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Bella Huang chose High Water Brewing for her project assignment.  The objective was to re-brand and create a packaging system for an existing beer or wine.  By happenstance, High Water Brewing saw Bella’s work and asked her to join them in the design process for a re-launch of their Calambic barrel aged sour beer series.  High Water Brewing is proud to introduce for it’s fist time, Violets Are Blue featuring the new artwork by Bella Huang.

Violets Are Blue is a 12 month barrel aged sour beer with Violet flowers, ripe Boysenberries and Orris root.  The delicate, floral sweetness of Violets and Orris root lingers gently amid the fragrant and luscious tang of the juicy boysenberries.  This is a wonderfully tart, thirst quenching beer brimming with fruit and flowers for the warm, summer days ahead.


Violets Are Blue will be released towards the end of July 2018 and will be available in 500 ml. bottles as well as on draft.  New barrel aged sour beers will be released this summer as well as returning favorites, each with a new label designed by Bella.  Be sure to check them out and let High Water Brewing know what you think…cheers!
