A brown ale, a bit deeper shade of red than our Raison DíEtre, gently nudged to 7% a.b.v. with beet sugars. Sparingly hopped with Warrior and Liberty hops. The grains we used in the mash include Pils, Wheat, Munich, Coffee, and Crystal.
But itís the ígrainí we add post-fermentation that makes this beer so special!
We started this brew day surfing the Delaware coast with our friends from Maineís own Grain Surfboards. They use sustainably harvested Maine-grown cedar to shape their boards, and we used it to add pungently, resiny, herbal notes to the finished beer.
This beer went on tap 6/30/2010... will be available until it is gone!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at the Great American Beer Festival on September 16, 2010. Really really really murky muted brown color with a cream-colored head. Aroma is kinda sour. Yep, sour. Flavor is... man, this is wacky. Itís kind of musky... I have no idea how to explain this. Itís good, well-crafted, and although itís wacky and out of any kind of norm, itís still good... but not great. Iíd definitely say this is one interesting beer thanks to the cedar and if youíre looking for something off-centered you can find it here! Good job.
