French Style Farmhouse Ale
There was a time in old world France when nearly every family farm had a brewery. A necessary part of farm life was to provide a ration of beer to laborers, as beer was safer to drink than the waterof the time. Farm Hand is our interpretation of what these rustic beers must have been like. It islight in body, mildly sweet andhas a slight cloudiness from theuse of simple un-malted grains similar to the period.
This beer is one of the owner's favorites. Inspired by a trip to France and a lengthy discussion about farmhouse ales (over a few too many farmhouse ales) with a French brewer from a small family run brewery.
