Our Biere de Garde was inspired by the farmhouse beers brewed in Northern France and brewery friend Steve Jones, proprietor and cheesemonger at Cheese Bar. Steve was lamenting the dearth of food-friendly Biere de Gardes and we took that as a cue to develop a beer that would fill the gap. Traditionally, Biere de Garde was brewed in Winter and early Spring while the climate was cooler, then garded (lagered) during the cool months, and reserved for consumption during the summer. This beer offers a soft and clean, malt forward flavor with a reserved hop profile.
