Spelt, an ancient cousin of wheat, grows exceptionally well in Ohio, so it was an obvious choice for our flagship saison. We brew this beer with 25% Ohio Spelt and 75% Ohio barley, malted by Haus Malts. The Ohio-grown hop varieties change due to availability, but currently include, Crystal, Cascade, Nugget, Chinook, and an unidentified “Mystery Hop”.
The draft version is force-carbonated and served fresh, while the bottled version is dry-hopped, bottle-conditioned, and allowed to go through a minimum of 2 months further conditioning in the bottle to bring out the Brett character. This highly effervescent beer is a real testament to the terroir of our state!
