HAMILTON, ON – MERIT Brewing has announced the release of the latest vintage of an annual beer-wine hybrid.
Then (6.4% abv):
This latest hybrid is fermented on 2020 Cab Franc grape skins from Rosewood Winery and brewed with pilsner malt smoked on the vines. Fieldberry, plum and sweet wine tannins play to a crowd of strawberry fields forever with a gently tart zap of field berry, light elderflower and honeysuckle, finishing with a beautiful tannic dryness. It’s a rosé, a baby wine – it’s a cab franc saison!
The 2020/21 edition of Then is available now at the MERIT Brewing retail store and online shop.
