Categories: ,


A selected blend of wine barrel-aged wild ale was blended & refermented on a blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon & Petite Bordeaux grapes (skins & juice) after receiving a light crush to reduce the expression of tannins from the grape seeds.The aromas of strawberry, raspberry & rhubarb lead to a tart flight of fruity flavors. The Syrah grape is the lead character in flavor here, with bright red berries, light spiciness & black pepper.The grapes for this beer are grown by our friends at Discovery Vineyard (Horse Heaven Hills AVA, Paterson, WA) above the Columbia River. We do not sulfate the grapes to allow natural yeast on the grape skins an influence in this wild blend.This beer is another tribute to Steven G. Herman, conservationist & instructor at Evergreen State College in Olympia.
