Clover


Farmstead® Ale Aged in Oak Barrels

Clover (2005-2014) was a grey cat. Simple. Yet, a few moments with her quickly revealed an independent, playful, occasionally subdued and reflective personality, one that held sway where she might roam. Clover was our compatriot, our guardian of grain, our huntress and our muse. We did not own Clover; she graced our presence. In her honor, we mindfully blended barrels of Ann, Art, and Flora that had been aged for 12 to 22 months—guided by her lingering spirit towards a beer of elegance, grace and patience. As often our Clover would, this beer took its own path and its own time to become what it is now; an effervescent, refined reflection of both our melancholy for her departure, but most importantly, our joy in traveling with her for a while.

Blend/Packaging

From time to time, guided by her ever-present spirit, we blend our favorite barrels of Ann, Art, and Flora, with the hopeful directionality of elegance, grace, and tasteful exuberance—each one a hallmark of our memory for her. The constituent components rested independently for between 16 to 27 months before their intertwined threading. As our Clover often would, this beer took its own path and its own time towards its becoming.

After two years of patient observation, an elevated, effervescent, refined reflection has emerged, one representing both our melancholy for her departure but, most importantly, our joy in traveling with her for a while.
