Preyer Brewing Co. | Undercurrant

Preyer Brewing Co. | Undercurrant
Christopher Hilliard

It’s been a season of surprises in North Carolina. First, we have one of the biggest December snow storms I’ve ever seen. Then, I discover a new brewery — Preyer Brewing — that managed to fly under my radar for the past 3 years.

Preyer opened its doors in 2015 in Greensboro, NC, and in that time have amassed a loyal following (see their 4.6/5 star rating on Google and 4.7/5 on Facebook). It’s no surprise when they collaborate to produce beer like Undercurrant, a saison brewed with violet flower tea and black currants, then aged in French oak cabernet sauvignon barrels. Preyer’s collaborators on this project are a couple of brothers named Wes and Chris Wheeler who work for a restaurant named — can you guess? — Undercurrent.

ABV: 7.5% | IBU: 27

As for the beer, let’s start from the top. Unless you’re at the taproom, you’ll find it in 4-packs of these attractive blue and silver cans, available at your friendly neighborhood bottle shop. Additionally, Undercurrent pours a lovely auburn color, reminiscent of red wine mixed with honey. The violet flower tea comes out in the smell, especially if you let it warm up a smidge. There is also malt sweetness and a slight tartness from the currants. Ultimately, Undercurrent is a smooth-drinking, medium-bodied saison, sweet enough to get your attention, spicy enough to keep it.
