Farmstead® Wheat Ale Aged in Oak Barrels
Flora is the wine barrel-aged version of Florence, our grandfather’s sister, as well as the name of our Farmstead® wheat ale. In her honor, we fill French oak wine barrels with Florence and allow the beer to mature in the presence of our resident microflora. After extended aging, a beautifully complex beer emerges; Florence becomes Flora.

Sent to barrels in the summer of 2019, this representation coalesced for more than a year before moving to bottles for further evolution and evaluation. After two years of deliberate and patient observation and monitoring, we can now share an ephemeral offering worthy of her memory.
