We recently released our Private Rye Biere De Garde. You may have tried it last year, when it was released as a one-off. This year, however, we are taking advantage of our recently expanded production to brew it as a full length seasonal. The longer run gives us the ability to offer bottles of it in 4-packs, instead of singles, as well as on draft.
Private Rye is brewed in the French farmhouse style as a warm fermented lager. It contains Belgian candy sugar as well as 30% Rye Malt locally sourced and malted in MA. We leave this beer slightly hazy to accentuate the mild fruity and yeasty characters. Copper in color, a spicy rye flavor emerges in a dry yet malty finish.
Going forward, we plan to keep our three year-round beers as well as a seasonal available in this format. We will also be continuing our smaller run specialties. Private Rye will be available through Spring, afterwhich it will make way for our summer seasonal, Leisure Time Lager.
