Self-Reliance: Nelson Sauvin
This coming week, we will release the next entry in our reimagined Self-Reliance series of Farmstead® single hop India pale ales: Nelson Sauvin. This batch was brewed and dry-hopped with personally selected Nelson Sauvin hops from Freestyle Farms—our agricultural partner in Upper Moutere, New Zealand—and conditioned in oak barrels for nearly 8 months.
This series allows us to showcase each hop’s characteristics within the framework of our delicately tart, lightly effervescent base beer.
Civil Disobedience #28
We will also introduce the next in our series of blended barrel-aged Farmstead® Ales: Civil Disobedience #28.
As is our tradition, every fourth batch of Civil Disobedience falls on the darker end of the spectrum, and this one is no different. Blended and packaged in June 2018, this batch is highlighted by Edith (our dark Farmstead® ale), which was aged for more than a year in port barrels that once held Prolegomena, as well as a single barrel of Phenomenology of Spirit aged in a Bourbon barrel for nearly a year that previously held our Bourbon barrel-aged maple syrup.
