an oak-aged ale refermented with Montmorency Cherries
Cherries have a deep history with beer and one we wanted to respect. Initially we held off on making a beer with cherries because we didn’t want to use the widely available, cloying and sweet, Bing or Rainier varieties. Fortunately for all of us, we connected with Rowley and Hawkins Fruit Farms in Basin City, WA who grow a variety called Montmorency that originated in the Val-d’Oise outside of Paris.
