Are you over 21?

As summer winds down and the night become cooler, we find no more perfect time of the year to release the bottles of our latest version of Field Beer, brewed with wheat from our friend Don Lewis at the Wild Hive Grain Project in Clinton Corners, NY.  The release of this batch not only marks the completion of our third “season” of the Field Beer series, but comes at a point in which we are celebrating a half year since confusing you with brewing our inaugural batch, the original Field Beer with Oats.

In thinking about where we are now and how this batch is different from the Field Beer versions to come before it, there are countless things we could look back on aside from the character brought to this batch by incorporating wheat.  But we’ll keep it simple and to the point.  This batch not only uses 100% CT grown malted barley, but 100% CT grown hops as well.  In fact, all of the hops used in this batch were picked on our farm at last year’s hop harvest festival [note: for more info on this year’s hop harvest festival and pig roast go to our farm’s website,].  

As for the beer?  Wheat gives our tart saison a distinct brightness among the variations of Field Beer, accentuating the floral and fruity esters that exist within our blend of farmhouse yeast strains.  Coupled with a dry, pleasing acidity it creates a distinctly expressive farmhouse ale that can carry you as comfortably through the summer sun as cool evening breeze. Campfires recommended.
