Cherry/Raspberry: 2019 Harvest
Farmstead® Ale Brewed with Cherries and Red Raspberries and Aged in Oak Barrels
As we more fully embrace the characteristics of each fruit that we source, we have somewhat reimagined our fruited Farmstead® ales. To more prominently represent those fruits and the variation of each harvest season, we let the fruit guide us in selecting from our range of barrel-aged Farmstead® ales—sometimes this will be a single base beer, other times it may be a blend of different barrels—all with the goal of best expressing the fruit’s unique aspects.
In this instance, we have blended Montmorency cherries from Allenholm in South Hero, Vt., and red raspberries from Elmore Roots in Wolcott, Vt., with a number of sympathetic barrels of Farmstead® ale to provide a thought representation of the fruits in season.
