Brewer's Notes Pimped-Up Holiday Brew

Over the river and through the woods to this rich, complex Belgian-style holiday brew. Complex aromas and essence of sweet dark malt, raisins, figs, anise, dark candi sugar, and spicy phenols. This beer will sting the toes and bite the nose, but no worries, the horse knows the way.

Our Process Open Fermentation

For a handful of our German-style beers, and all of our Belgian-style beers, we use open top fermenters. These fermenters aren't shaped like a traditional conical fermenter. They have a wider diameter with a saucer-shaped bottom and no top, leaving it open to the air. This shape puts less hydrostatic and barometric stress on the yeast. When specific strains of yeast are exposed to open air, they express a more intense range of esters and phenolics.
