A brown ale, a bit deeper shade of red than our Raison D'Etre, gently nudged to 7% a.b.v. with beet sugars. Sparingly hopped with Warrior and Vanguard hops. The grains we used in the mash include Pils, Wheat, Munich, Coffee, and Crystal.
But it's the 'grain' we add post-fermentation that makes this beer so special!
For this brew we team up with Sam’s friends from Maine’s own Grain Surfboards. They use sustainably harvested Maine-grown cedar to shape their boards, and we used it to add pungently, resiny, herbal notes to the finished beer.
We first brewed this beer in 6/2010... but a new batch returns 8/21/14 and will be available until it is gone!
Due to the limited availabilty of our Brewpub Exclusive Beers, GrainToGlass will not be available to go in growlers. sorry
