HopCulture | Fair Isle Brewing: The Shepherds of Wild Yeast and Spent Hops
Spend mere moments chatting with Fair Isle Brewing Co-founder Andrew Pogue and R&D Brewer Matt Rowe and it’s almost like they’ve opened up a door at the back of your wardrobe. But instead of walking into Narnia, you take a step into this Seattle-based brewery’s own magical backyard.
There, words like sustainable, patience, and terroir grow on trees.
And ingredients like wild blueberries, foraged fir tips, and local Yakima Valley hops flourish in abundance.
In the fields of Fair Isle, the concept of a beer stretches as far as the eye can see.
Although this sounds like a fantasy, we promise you the best part about Fair Isle is that it actually exists.
And they’re brewing some of the most exquisite mixed-culture saisons across the country.
