Bughaven is an open fermented wild ale barrel aged in Amarone & Sangiovese wine barrels for 14 months! The wort we fermented in the coolship was a simple one brewed with well water, local grain, and a blend of fresh and aged hops. The barrels we chose for aging were freshly emptied Amarone & Sangiovese wine barrels. We typically work with neutral oak, so it was fun to blend a beer with a more forward oak and vinous character. Bughaven was blended in February of 2020 and 100% naturally re-fermented in bottles and kegs.

Farmhouse Ale & Ramen

Farmhouse Ales are approachable, parfumey, lightly floral beers with a light body, a lower ABV, and notes of fruits and spices. The beer is often very dry and super effervescent with a distinct bitterness and hence needs a dish that can stand up to it. Since the beer is light enough for a hot summer day as well, the food doesn’t need to be heavy but spiced up to the max. Ramen noodles are the obvious choice here. The distinct yeast flavor matches the umami notes of the ramen and all notes of spices and fruits stand up to the Asian spices in the broth.
