7% ABV | 375ml bottles & limited draft

This barrel-aged ale is a celebration of the California autumn harvest. Brewed with heirloom pumpkins from La Tercera Farms in Bodega Bay, crisp Fuyu persimmons from Hamada Farms in the San Joaquin Valley and fresh ginger from the Santa Clara Valley, then aged for over a year in white wine barrels to create a deliciously complex wild ale. Enjoy with delicate white fish and roasted squash.

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 fall and winter 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.
