After going out to California and brewing "Defenders of the Funk" with Phil from Almanac Brewing, we knew we had to have them out here! We weren't able to have them in person unfortunately but the Oozlefinch/Almanac friends know how to have a good time no matter what! We decided to brew a Biere de Garde with blackstrap molasses and it is a dreamy beer. Pouring a dark ruby with a frothy and persistent tan head, it has notes of toffee & raisin with a malty sweet character and dry finish. What makes this beer even cooler is the yeast used to ferment. Although Biere De Gardes are traditionally lagered with ale yeast, we decided to use a wild sourced lager strain from our friends at Bootleg Biology, giving this collab a fun and unique twist that tastes amazing.
