Raspberry: 2020 Harvest
Farmstead® Ale Brewed Raspberries and Aged in Oak Barrels
As we more fully embrace the characteristics of each fruit that we source, we have somewhat reimagined our fruited Farmstead® ales. To more prominently represent those fruits and the variation of each harvest season, we let the fruit guide us in selecting from our range of barrel-aged Farmstead® ales—sometimes this will be a single base beer, other times it may be a blend of different barrels—all with the goal of best expressing the fruit’s unique aspects.
For the next in our harvest season selections, we blended a selection of our Farmstead® ales—all of which spent more than a year in oaken rest—for pairing with red raspberries from the 2020 harvest season at Fisher Brothers Farm in Shelburne, Vt. This blending and pairing expresses a thoughtful representation of the fruit in season.
