Signet 2019:

Signet is our Marigold bier. We have been having fun playing with flowers other than hops to add aromatic qualities to our beer. When flowers are steeped and conditioned on beer after fermentation and, often in our case long barrel conditioning, the aromatic properties of that ingredient are best preserved. The base for this beer was fermented in oak with mixed culture and matured on lees for 8 months. It was then blended with a young stainless beer fermented with the same house culture, then conditioned on Tangerine Gem Marigolds from our garden. 

Gem marigolds are also known as Mexican Marigolds or Signet Marigolds. They are the original, wild species from which modern, more showy cultivars are bred from. We grow them in our garden because their flowers are tiny, profuse, and edible-great for making any dish look fancy. We have also learned that this varietal has the strongest aromatic compounds. This makes them a great companion plant to tomatoes and other nightshades as pests are put off by the aroma that not only comes from the plant’s flowers, but the foliage as well. We think they smell wonderful. While the name “Tangerine Gem” has been used to denote the orange color of its tiny flowers, we find the bouquet of this gem definitely reminiscent of orange rind, with a subtle, herbal-minty note. We harvested the entire plants from the ground up in August of 2019, and immediately transferred the best blend of bier we could find to condition on our little gems.

Bottled 8/2/19.

Staglore:

Back in July of 2019 we foraged over 120# of wild sumac growing in the surrounding area. The base beer is a very simple grain bill of Pilsner and Chit malts. We loaded the kettle with sumac at whirlpool and then stuffed the hopback with even more. We fermented this with one of our favorite clean and classic saison yeast strains. After primary fermentation we moved the beer over to one of our 400l oak puncheons to finish out with our house mixed culture for an additional 6 months prior to packaging.

We get delicate notes of rose hip, a medley of berries and fresh cut hay.
