COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Farm Hand: French Style Farmhouse Ale 5.5% abv 16 oz Becher glass There was a time in old world France when nearly every family farm had a brewery. A necessary part of farm life was to provide a ration of beer to sustain and nourish the laborers and beer was safer to drink than the water of the time. Farmhand is our interpretation of what these rustic beers must have been like. It is slightly cloudy from being made with raw un-malted grains a nd a simple single infusion mash procedure.

1 pint can. (Marathon) Alto, MI.
Yesterday evening we were going to visit Brewery Vivant in Grand Rapids but then my son decided that its not a good idea. So we went to the hotel instead. Im not saying if it was a good choice or not. Anyhow I decided to buy this beer to see if we really missed something. Lets see. Slightly cloudy yellow golden color with a small white head. Apple, yeast, some basement and malt in the aroma. The flavor is dryish malt, mild hops, fruitiness, apple and some basement. Drinkable.
