Fall 2022 – The White Clay Creek Series

Released Fall 2022

Mid-Atlantic take on a French-style Saison.

$25.00 each; 10% discount on case of 12

The French word saison means season, reflecting the historical practice of brewing this ale in winter to enjoy in the summer. Like the brewers of old, we began on a brisk day, filling an open vessel (called a coolship) that allows native microorganisms to initiate the spontaneous fermentation. We also added Saison yeast extracted from a 19th-century wooden beer barrel, part of an archaeological dig in Washington, D.C. For even greater flavor complexity, we aged the beer in American oak barrels that previously held Chardonnay and added Brettanomyces bruxellensis wild yeast for the final fermentation. The result is a taste experience like no other-a velvety smooth, medium body Saison with funky barnyard notes, a hint of woody tannins balanced with pleasant cherry tartness, and a subtle finish of Chardonnay. 

Brewed with malted barley, malted wheat, unmalted wheat, Munich malt, and aged Tettnanger hops.

Texture Flanders-style Red Ale

Released Fall 2022
92 cases produced in this batch
10.2% ABV
Mid-Atlantic take on a Flanders-style Red Ale

$25.00 each; 10% discount on case of 12

Beers like Flanders-style Red Ale are deeply geohistorical and place-based. They are known for where they are produced and the techniques used handed down through generations. These beers taste and present in a certain way because of the specific wild yeasts and bacteria that thrive in the environments and exact locations where they were brewed. We began filling an open vessel (called a coolship) to initiate the spontaneous fermentation. Texture was then aged in a combination of American and French Oak barrels that previously held a variety of different red wines in both Burgundy and Bordeaux style casks. Our Flanders-style Red Ale is reddish/burgundy in color with tan foam. It has a barnyard funky character in the aroma and flavor. Enjoy gentle, yet rustic acidity with hints of dark caramel and chocolate. Our red ale also has slight fruity notes of dates, figs, and pie cherries.

Brewed with malted barley, unmalted wheat, Carmel malt, and aged Tettnanger and Cascade hops.
