Brewing Philosophy

The farmhouse brewing movement from the hand crafted beer community is an effort by those who strive to produce exceptional beer. The rustic nature of making beer in a more primitive and authentic environment drives our process. It hosts peculiar and expressive organisms that represent a model of beer that spans a gap in brewing prehistory. This form of brewing resists adherence to any style guidelines because the beer’s profile can be as varied as the imagination: bold or mild, light or dark, sweet or bitter. Creating distinctive, unique flavors and giving the natural process full credit is at the heart of farmhouse brewing. A blend of yeasts including the family Brettanomyces is required to achieve the desired character, where a chorus of microorganisms creates fruity, spicy, and peppery flavors and aromas. No preservatives, filtering or pasteurization ensure that fine flavors and delicate aromas are preserved. The champagne bottle, finished with a cork and cage is a very traditional presentation for farmhouse ales, and it will accommodate the high pressures that are produced during bottled conditioning.

Farmhouse Porter
Bottle Conditioned

Porter is a style with a well-known history. Early in the craft brewing movement this type of beer was heartily embraced, and still today, many breweries proudly offer excellent versions of this old stand-by. Classic Porter is a fairly rare thing. Barrel aged, naturally carbonated in the bottle, farmhouse porters are a delicious hint of what a true artisanal ale can taste like.
