The Return of Poetica
Beginning Thursday, July 12, we will present Poetica 2, the continuation of our lager experimentation journey. This will be available only on draft in our tasting room in 35cl pours each Thursday (Durobor glasses—we don’t have enough mugs… yet!); we will tap a fresh keg for those of you who join us, but only one keg will be made available, and only on Thursdays for the next three weeks.
For this iteration, we brewed Mary with a single decoction mash process, our sourced German Hersbrucker and Spalter hops, and then lagered in a single French oak puncheon in our cooler. After three months of conditioning, the beer was moved to a tank and krausened (as is all of our lager) with fresh fermenting beer to provide natural carbonation. After another two months of further conditioning and slow carbonation, we present you with a beautifully softened, refined, and elevated representation of Mary.
