Our barrel-ageing program is a regular source of both joy, mystery, and longing… and we’re delighted at last to be satisfying some of these desires with the release of our very first hosted collaboration with Field House Brewing!
We aimed to satisfy our combined passions for all things wild and experimental! Field House visited us last October (with their special Fraser Valley isolated yeast strain) and we brewed an Experimental Pale Ale with that has finally come to fruition. This mixed fermentation was carefully nurtured over the last seven months as a second wild yeast, Brett. claussennii, was given time to develop its signature aroma and flavours.
Refermented in the bottle, our first barrel release of 2018 is very suitable for cellaring. We look forward sharing further results of our Barrelholder program as well some exciting future plans for it over the coming months; stay tuned!
The Experimental Brett Pale Ale is on tap at the brewery starting tomorrow (limited kegs!), however bottles will be available at select craft-friendly liquor stores around BC next week and at the brewery!
