Alban Farmhouse Red

Alban Farmhouse Red

“This special release was crafted in collaboration with John Alban, of Alban Vineyards.”

Inspired by the traditional Red and Brown Farmhouse Ales of the Flanders region of Belgium, this beer underwent a mixed culture fermentation and spent fourteen months aging in French Oak red wine barrels before being bottled. The resulting aged beer, blended with fresh beer of the same recipe at bottling, is crisp and tart with a light body, moderate carbonation, and complex notes of dark fruit, vinous oak and hints of sherry. This beer will continue to pleasantly age and evolve in the bottle when stored at proper cellar temperatures.
