NORWEGIAN-STYLE FARMHOUSE ALE
This unique farmhouse ale was inspired by the Norwegian Maltøl tradition of brewing with Juniper boughs and Kveik yeast, which combine with a rustic grain bill to produce a blend of fruity esters, spice, gentle caramel, Juniper berry, and a tannic, vinous wood character imparted by whole Juniper branches that were added to the mash.
