Ganache

Dark ale fermented with Brettanomyces and aged on raspberries

The liquid equivalent of biting into a raspberry-filled dark chocolate cake. Aromas suggesting mixed berry and roasty cocoa meld with flavor notes of tart raspberry, cherry, and subtle coffee. Even without the addition of chocolate, Ganache gains its cocoa notes from a robust grain bill featuring Special B, caramel malt, raw wheat, oats, our 2-row base malt, Midnight wheat, and black malt. This dark burgundy-colored beer is fermented in stainless with both our house yeast and Brettanomyces claussenii before aging on fresh, local raspberries. No utensils necessary.

Sour Beers

Tartness can be found in a wide variety of beers—and can be added to beers in a wide variety of ways. You’ll find sourness in beer from souring bacteria, from fresh fruit, and sometimes from wild microflora floating in the Maine air.
