Leaves of Grass: April 16, 2016
Dry-Hopped Ale Fermented and Aged in Wine Barrels
Leaves of Grass represents our brewery’s collective pursuit to create, explore and challenge. For each batch, we employ uniquely different processes and ingredients, all of which further our understanding of the art and science of brewing.
We aged a small amount of imperial pale ale in wine barrels for 7 months, abundantly dry-hopped the beer with Amarillo, Nelson Sauvin and Simcoe, and then bottled conditioned it for over 10 months. The result is delicate, aromatic, lightly tart and pleasantly subtle.
