Saison aged in oak barrels
"Over the past four years we’ve been very fortunate to develop friendships with so many amazingly talented breweries, some of which we’ve had the opportunity to make collaborative beers with. We’re excited to bring you a beer we brewed with our friends at Jackie O’s Brewery – Athens to Athens Grist to Grist!
Athens to Athens Grist to Grist is a saison (6%) made with spelt sourced from Jackie O’s community in Ohio and wheat locally sourced from DaySpring Farms in Danielsville, GA. The saison base was split among wine barrels. Half the barrels inoculated with our house-mixed culture, and the other half with Jackie O’s house-mixed culture.
After a year of resting in barrels, we blended the saisons to bring together the flavors from the two house cultures. Jackie O’s signature lemon meringue flavor pairs perfectly with our stone fruit notes."
