FARMHOUSE SAISON CO-FERMENTED WITH GEWÜRZTRAMINER JUICE
Blurring the line between brewing and winemaking, our Co-Fermentation Project explores the interaction of grapes and grain. Each release co-ferments a blend of traditionally-brewed wort and the juice of wine grapes, with fermentation often followed by a period of aging in oak wine barrels. The project aspires to achieve a blend that surpasses the sum of its parts, surprising even the most discerning palates and expanding our expectations
of what beer can be.
Saisonztraminer begins as a delicate farmhouse saison. After the brew house, gewürztraminer grape juice is blended in and the mixture is co-fermented using our house Belgian yeast. The result is a beer with all the peppery phenols and lively effervescence one would expect of the style, but with flavors of rose petals, lychee fruit and honeysuckle, as well as a vinous minerality that would be impossible to achieve without the co-fermentation process.
