In 2018 we have returned our brewing focus to IPAs and Farmhouse ales. Our goals this year are variety and experimentation within these styles. Here are snapshots of our IPA and Farmhouse Ale programs:
In March, we established two IPA series' for production: our American IPA Series and our New England IPA Series. We will have one new IPA release per month, alternating between our NE IPAs, and our American IPAs. Each IPA released will run for 2 months, being brewed twice during its run to keep the beer at its freshest state for consumption.
We are focused on two Saison recipes for the rest of the year 2018, along with variants of each.
Saison du Labaddie (a new version of our Batch 1: Saison: Belgian yeast), and
Saison Heure D’été (a new version of our Batch 10: Saison: French & Belgian yeast mix).
We will release variants of both of these beers throughout 2018, starting with an Oak Aged Saison du Labaddie, and a Saison Heure D’été w/ Brett in April. Look for locally fruited variants, and barrel aged variants of these beers later this Spring and Summer. We will be also be releasing Saison du Labaddie in 16oz cans this summer.
