a Piquette-inspired farmhouse ale with second-use berries from Sidhu Farms
Often when we brew fruited beers, there is still an astonishing amount of flavor left behind in the fruit after packaging. Wanting to breathe new life into a blend of berries from the amazing Sidhu Farms in Puyallup, we took cues from the wine industry to create our first piquette style farmhouse ale – and we’re pleased as punch with the outcome.
Lora highlights the nuanced sweetness of these second-run blackberries, raspberries, and boysenberries while still letting the signature dryness of our house culture shine through. Three months in oak adds a soft hint of almond, and undertones of rosemary add complexity to the extremely refreshing, easy-drinking base beer.
The desire to conserve and use our resources more effectively as a brewery pushes us to be more creative, and it’s satisfying when the payoff is something as delightful as Lora. We’re excited for you to try this one.
