The Other Shore Dryhopped Farmhouse Ale (6.8% abv):
Farmhouse Ales are typically Belgian, and Belgium borders France in the same way that AB borders BC. So, we brewed and dry-hopped this interprovincial outpouring with some fun French hops: Barbe Rouge, Triskel, and Strisselspalt, to be specific. We hit up homegrown Alberta floor maltsters Hogarth Malt for more than 90% of the grain that went into this beer. Floor malting is exactly what it sounds like: as farmhouse as it gets. (Industrial revolution, shmindustrial revolution.)
The Other Shore is plush on the palate and super-duper drinkable. Expect some spicy saison-appropriate notes from the yeast and give the hops français credit for the delicate floral flourishes. Pilsner malt sweetened the pot with a lovely aroma and just a touch of honey. All told, if delicious was measured in area, we’d say this is 33 acres of tasty.
