Our newest beer, Manifeste, is a Grisette, which is a style originally brewed for Belgian coal miners. Fermented with a farmhouse yeast, which added a subtle spiciness, and layered with multiple late hop additions of Mosaic and Simcoe for intense hop aroma & flavor, our Grissette finished similar to a hazy IPA. Citrusy and and light with a slight haze, Manifeste is the perfect refresher for the proletariat. Pairs well with Moules Frites as well as other shellfish dishes or alternately serve as contrast with a peach cobbler for dessert.
We are loving the new Oud Kriek! This is our two year aged version of 2015 Oud Kriek, our Barrel Aged Sour Cherry Ale. It started as a Belgian style golden ale, then we aged it for twenty four months in Pinot Noir, Syrah and Makers Mark whiskey barrels with Brett, Lacto and Oregon Tart Cherries.. It is a sour aficionado’s dream come true, with an intense tartness and delicious, delicate cherry and stone fruit notes. Aging it for an extended period beautifully balanced and blended all the wine, wood, whiskey, fruit and wild yeast flavors. 8% ABV
For our dark beer lovers we also have a delicious new Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, Black Sabbath. Aptly named, Black Sabbath is dark and heavy, melodically smooth and intense. Barrel aged in Wild Turkey barrels for 22 months, it is a very complex brew, fermented with the Westmalle Trappist Ale yeast. It has a huge Bourbon and Oak nose, with complimenting flavors of vanilla, smoke, chocolate and a very fruit forward funky character from the yeast and extended barrel aging time.This is a very special, small batch beer, perfect for the holidays. 9% ABV
