our foeder-aged standard farmhouse ale
Eldon is our workhorse oaked ale that serves as the blank slate for many of our fruited beers including Tove, Val, and Claude – but we’ve never released it unadorned, until today. Composed of Fritz Pilsner and White Club Wheat malt from Skagit Valley Malting, Hallertau Mittelfrüh hops, and of course our mixed culture, Eldon shines the spotlight on the most important ingredient: time. 11 months in our foeder brings a soft, rounded mouthfeel and a pleasant acidity that creates the ideal canvas for our fruited offerings. We believe this celebration of simplicity deserved to be enjoyed on its own.
