An ever-changing small batch blend that uses a farmhouse brown ale base with any number of herbs or spices carefully chosen by our brewers to make a wine-like and complex beer unlike any other. It’s barrel-aged for roughly one year and every vintage is different. Cellar for two to four years, depending on vintage.
