Elysian Washington Grange Farmhouse Ale


Brewed by Elysian Brewing Co.
Seattle, Washington USA
Style: Saison | Ratings: 10 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 7.4%
2012 National Homebrewers Conference Commemorative Beer The recipe for the Grange Farmhouse Ale was a collaboration between Dick Cantwell, Head Brewer at Elysian, and Seattle-area homebrewing luminaries Brandon Horn and Mark Emiley. This beer is made with all Washington ingredients: It combines Great Western Washington Select malt, Northern Brewer hops from the Yakima Valley, Washington-produced Golden Delicious apples, blackberry and wildflower honey and mint in a heavily locally-interpreted version of a Belgian-style Farmhouse ale. Dozens of homebrewers took part in the creation of this brew, from roasting malts to an old-fashioned cider pressing party and brew day at our Capitol Hill pub.
