7% ABV | 375ml bottles & limited draft

Our first California wild ale is brewed with a blend of Cabernet & Muscat Grapes from Alfieri Farms, Concord grapes from Hamada Farms and plums from Twin Girls Farm—all located in the fertile San Joaquin Valley. Aged for over a year in used wine barrels, this sour ale blends rich flavors of the 2011 autumn harvest with farmhouse funk. Enjoy with aromatic Taleggio cheese and rich duck confit.

Farm to Barrel

Our Farm to Barrel beers highlight the tradition of aging beers in oak barrels.  This American Wild Ale was aged in used wine barrels for over a year.  In the barrels we blended a classic Belgian-style ale with a selection of late summer and early fall fruits and a cocktail of wild Belgian yeast.  The yeast slowly morph the beer from a classic ale into something more, creating an acidic bite as well as pulling oak and vanilla flavors from the barrel.  After more than a year the barrels are blended back together, creating a vinous, delicate beer that  highlights a specific moment in time from our select Northern California Farms. Farm to Barrel Beers are alive in the bottle, and designed to be aged for up to 5 years.
