Adelaide with Cherries
AN OAK-AGED ADAMBIER WITH CHERRIES
Born out of a recipe from our homebrewing days, Adelaide is our take on recreating the oft overlooked Adambier style. Hailing from the era of pre-industrialized malting processes, these strong ales exhibited a smoke-forward profile from the use of wood-fired kilns and were usually aged for an extended period in wood.
We started with a robust grist of Munich, Vienna, and Chocolate malts alongside the star of the show: Beechwood Smoked Barley. This ingredient allowed us to emulate that smoky aspect, while supporting a more rounded and rich malt base. This version of Adelaide was aged in Westland Peated Whiskey casks atop Montmorency Cherries from Rowley and Hawkins Fruit Farms in Eastern Washington.
