Leaves of Grass: September 18, 2015
Farmstead® Ale Brewed with Nelson Sauvin and Honey, and Aged in Wine Barrels with Gooseberries and Northern Kiwi Fruit
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.
Brewed over two years ago and allowed to age in chardonnay wine barrels for 18 months, this was brewed with barley, oats, wheat, honey and Nelson Sauvin hops, then aged on gooseberries and Northern Kiwi Fruit from our friends at Elmore Roots in Elmore, Vermont. This beer and recipe is based upon a 2006 pilot brew version of a New Zealand inspired beer—which, loosely, would become Juicy.
