All of our beers are brewed one barrel at a time (they're even mashed in a barrel!), lending a distinct vintage quality to each batch. It also allows us to stretch our wings creatively, completely free of a production schedule.
All of our beers are produced using a variety of yeasts and bacteria. Our inspiration comes from the farmhouse brewing traditions of Europe, and brewers of funky, weird beers around the world.
Every one of our beers starts and finishes in oak barrels that previously held wine or various spirits. The oak and its previous inhabitant become a part of the flavour profile, and our mixed culture takes residency in the nooks and crannies.
Bottle-conditioned, barrel-fermented, mixed-culture beers available to go at the brewery!
DRY-HOPPED AGED GOLDEN SOUR
A golden sour, aged for 8 months in the barrel with a diverse mixed culture of saccharomyces, brettanomyces, lactobacillus, and pediococcus. Bright and fruity (lemon and green apple), with a complex, earthy funk. Lightly dry-hopped with Ella and Hallertau Blanc. 6.0% ABV 500 ml
AGED GOLDEN SOUR WITH PLUMS
The idea for this beer has been dancing around in my head for some time. A golden sour, aged for 8 months in the barrel with a mixed culture of saccharomyces, brettanomyces, lactobacillus, and pediococcus. Refermented on a copious amount of Okanogan plums. Jammy and tart, with a delightfully complex Brett funk. 6.0% ABV 500 ml
