BARREL AGED BEER RELEASE
ABOUT THE BEER:
Nicene Farmhouse Saison
Aged in White Wine Barrels for 15 Months
Brewed with traditional Saison ingredients to provide a rustic, bready malt backbone and paired with the tropical fruit forward wine and French oak notes. This batch has been aged in barrels for 15 months helping to develop a significant musty cellar character. Over time, Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus will continue to develop the gentle sourness and earthy flavors.
Just as the Council of Nicaea produced a simple confession, the Nicene Creed, our Nicene ale represents the patient efforts of bringing many ingredients together to create this thoughtful, delicious beverage.
Starting on Monday, August 28 at 12pm, Nicene will be available for pre-sale in our online store. Bottles may be picked up at the bottle release pick up party in the Tasting Room on Thursday, August 31st, 2017 and the following 6 weeks during normal tasting room hours.
