Farmstead® India Pale Ale Brewed and Dry-Hopped with Citra® Hops and Aged in Puncheons
Ralph Waldo Emerson’s essay “Self-Reliance” inspires and compels our persistent reflection, examination, and refinement. From our ongoing pursuit of unique and personally selected hops to our steady quest after refinement and the individualized expression of elegance in all of our beers, Emerson’s urging to “insist on yourself; never imitate” provides motivation towards greater self-exploration, self-expression, and self-realization.
Our Self-Reliance series of Farmstead® single-hop India pale ales allows us to explore how our Farmstead® ale yeast and various hops express themselves in unison. This newest iteration was brewed in early May 2020, conditioned in our puncheons for four months, and double dry-hopped with hand-selected Citra® from Washington’s Yakima Valley.
