Grand Teton Brewing Co. has released its third Brewer’s Series beers.
Named Farmhouse, the beer is an 11.8 percent ABV Belgian-style saison that was aged in red wine barrels for eight months before having brettanomyces bruxellensis added just as it was being bottled.
“This beer presented a unique challenge to the brewers at Grand Teton Brewing: achieve an extremely high alcohol beer while maintaining excellent balance,” reads a press release. “After tasting the beer, the folks at Grand Teton Brewing knew the brewers had well surpassed their expectations.”
This is the third release in the Brewer’s Series, which “will include sours, fruit beers, blends, barrel-aged, and first-time styles.” One of the beers was released last year and two have been released so far in 2016:
- American Sour (8.5 percent ABV) — ale aged in oak barrels
- Brett Saison (6.2 percent ABV) — dry-hopped brett saison aged in wine barrels
- Farmhouse (11.8 percent ABV) — Belgian-style saison in red wine barrels for eight months with brett added
According to a press release, Farmhouse is packaged in 11.2-ounce bottles ($7.99) and is shipping to retailers in Grand Teton’s distribution network now.
