We are insanely proud to announce the addition of two new beers into the CT landscape! Over the past two months we have brewed five different batches of beer, and some of them are really testing out the old “good thing comes to those that wait” model. These next beers should be a fiiiine accompaniment to the seasonal change as it hits full swing and we welcome the oncoming glorious weather, new grass greening the landscapes around us, and days of summer ahead.
So get ready, because there is a lot of action popping off the farm in the next few weeks and we hope you are gearing up to join us every step of the way!
On April 30 we will at long last be releasing the second official batch of beer that we brewed with a tapping @The Corner in Litchfield from 6 pm on. Waymaker, our 100% brett fermented IPA is finally ready! Yeast can be a finicky organism, especially “untamed” wild varieties. This batch took several days to start fermenting and once it finally began to do it’s thing (not without some gentle encouraging talks), the path was anything but traditional. Fitting for this beer! It is bursting with tropical and hoppy flavors that we think you will love. We are unbelievably pleased with the results and are proud to have it be our first IPA and a steady part of our production.
If that wasn’t exciting enough, we’ll be releasing another beer the very next night at Kingsley Tavern in Kent! Farmer’s Table is our dry hopped table beer, another take on “traditional” farmhouse ales. Whereas Field Beer has a refreshingly tart character to balance the spicy and aromatic notes from our house yeast strain, this beer offers a snappy bitterness from ample use of american hops to create a layered beer that will cleanse any pallet, and is suitable for a session or single serving with a meal!
Shortly after, we’ll be releasing our second season of Field Beer – Spring! But more on that later.
You’ll be able to catch us at several other events coming up.
