A thatched farm with an old horse barn, a handful of goats in the meadow, an orchard with yellow fruit trees behind the house, humid hay stacks in the distance and hop vines in the hedge. Scents of the countryside, an open-hearted temper, a beer without ornaments but with truly honest ingredients: that is Erve, our wild cross between a brett IPA and a saison.
Erve is a rustic, dry and bitter beer, with a notable palate of locally grown Cascade hops that give warm notes of stone fruit and citrus. We use whole hop cones because we love their pure and intense flavours and bitterness. Our wild house culture creates a rural and fruity character that is underlined by locally grown heirloom grains. Erve pairs best with an honest, tasty meal or mature farmer’s cheese.
