Fist Blush

Wild Ale Aged in Oak Barrels with Chardonnay Pomace and Cabernet Franc Grapes Added

Brewed In Collaboration with Old Westminster Winery & Vineyard

We love working with other breweries, but sometimes it feels like we all have similar ideas. When our friends at Old Westminster Winery & Vineyard (Westminster, MD) had pomace leftover from pressing Chardonnay grapes we added it to a pale beer and fermented with a combination of our two house wild cultures. A few months later we transferred the beer into Chardonnay barrels with Spanish cedar. Finally giving it a flavor and color boost with whole Cabernet Franc grapes.

The result is akin to a Blush or Rosé, with moderate tartness, a light fruitiness of red and white grapes, and zesty grapefruit aromatics from the Spanish cedar.
