ABV 4.1% | IBU 12

Bring on the last of those gloriously long, lovely summer evenings. The warm breezes on cool night air, crisp cold beer in a squishy koozie, and that perfect dab to put you in exactly the right head space.

The Sun Made Cucumber Sour is a favorite from Oakshire Brewery, and one of their core beers. That means you can enjoy this bad boy year round. This crisp, cool, and refreshing beer punches your taste buds with fresh-from-the-garden cucumber flavor that is trailed by notes of honeydew melon and juicy cantaloupe.

The sourness of this ale is balanced perfectly with these sweet summertime tastes – a perfect late afternoon sipper. Pro Tip: Try a Chamoy rim dip, with some lime and Tajin. It adds an exciting level of sweet heat to this top-shelf offering.

The Terpenes

59.42% THC | 0.15% CBD | 10.23% Terpenes

When you pop the top of this jar, you’ll see an almost perfect shade of gold. Then, a creamy, peppery, evergreen smell envelopes your senses. It takes over your taste buds when inhaling and tickles the nose on exhale. The top terpenes caryophyllene, humulene, and limonene linger – sending your brain and body on a train to relaxation station.

The effects are almost instantaneous as the stress, body aches and everyday ailments just fade away into the distance. The Dolato isn’t a couch-locked type of high, but rather a gentle, calming breeze. It stimulates amazing conversations with a generous dose of giggles.

The Pairing

This smooth, social pairing is perfect for a date night or hangout. Oakshire’s calming, cucumber profile coupled with Willamette Valley Alchemy’s Dolato dab is a relaxing recipe for the last of Oregon’s warm summer nights!
