Farmageddon (California Zinfandel - 2019)
BARREL AGED WILD FARMHOUSE ALE CONDITIONED ON CALIFORNIA ZINFANDEL GRAPES
Farmageddon is our wild farmhouse ale that we've been brewing, blending, and aging for almost as many years as we've been open. The blending process allows us to maintain a common thread across batches, the aging adds nuanced layers, while the brett and bacteria work hard to create small idiosyncrasies in each release. It's a refined, effervescent, and delicious beer worthy of special occasions and idle weeknights.
We transferred the beer onto whole Zinfandel grapes from California, letting it age for just over a month before undergoing an extensive bottle conditioning period.
What it smells like, what it tastes like: Refined brett aromatics and a dry body showcasing lots of fruity cranberry, strawberry rhubarb pie, and tart raspberry sorbet notes. The Zinfandel grapes contribute elements of berry and soft spice, which complement the unique yeast character in Farmageddon.
