You know we’re heading into harvest season when local breweries are mixing seasonal crops with craft beer.
Two new seasonal brews will be unveiled this weekend.
It’s the first of a new series of limited edition beers called the Forager Series that “uses hand harvested fruits and herbs to create unique beers that put a spin on traditional styles.”
Here’s more, from the brewery newsletter:
These flowers are not to be confused with fennel seed or fennel pollen, the flowers impart a subtly sweet anise character into a lightly malted and fruity beer. The result is a subtle licorice and fruity aroma balanced by a smooth crisp and lightly malty beer ending in the perfect amount of roast character thanks to the midnight wheat for added balance.
