For the Week of 6 October 2021
Three new bottled offerings, two freshly canned beers, and an update for our weekly reservation openings. It’s a great week ahead!
Barrel-Aged Dorothy: Southern and Northern Hemispheres
To honor Dorothy, Edward’s sister, we have aged her namesake dry-hopped Farmstead® Pale Ale in wine barrels for more than 10 months, then divided the batch, so that each might be adorned with distinctly different hops. These compositions are intended to highlight the characteristics of hops grown in two different hemispheres. The Southern Hemisphere expression features Motueka™, Nelson Sauvin, and Riwaka; the Northern Hemisphere variant showcases Citra®, Amarillo®, and HBC 586.
We encourage you to enjoy these as counterparts, and they will be sold only as a pair (two 375ml bottles).
Raspberry 2020 Harvest
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.
We will also have fresh cans of Edward, our American Pale Ale, and Double Citra, our Imperial Single Hop Pale Ale with hand-selected Citra® hops. Please note: Double Citra will not be available at 11:30 a.m. opening on Wednesday, due to packaging schedules; we expect we’ll have cans ready for purchase a little bit after Noon. We will be participating in an offsite company-wide retreat through Tuesday afternoon, which will delay canning this coming week (more about the retreat later on).
Normally, we make additional reservations for our taproom available Monday evening around 5 p.m., as weather and capacity permits, but with our team being offsite Monday, look for openings Tuesday evening instead.
