Civil Disobedience Blend 34
Blended Barrel-Aged Farmstead® Ale
Our Civil Disobedience series is, ultimately, an act of optimism and hopeful curation. As we track and trace each barrel, noting and estimating various trajectories and arcs, options and patterns slowly emerge. Some barrels stand out singularly and become their namesake’s peak expression; others terminate in perceptible failure, destined for reintegration into our fields—perhaps becoming beer again far down the water table chain. A third barrel category seeks accompaniment within a sympathetic chorus and often, upon curated blending with like-directed selections, undertakes a secondary journey of integration and co-development, one that can take years.
The thirty-fourth entry in our blended barrel-aged Farmstead® ale collection spans four years and five different threads—including wine barrel-aged Anna from 2016 and Florence from 2018. This presentation has undertaken an unhurried journey from brew day to assembly to glass, including more than three years of conditioning in the bottle prior to release. We can now present to you another blended experience of time, place, and patience.
