Blackberry Farm New Releases

Blackberry Farm Winter Saison...$13.99
Inspired by crisp December nights on our estate in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, this Saison is reminiscent of the natural nuances of winter. Light and dark wheat add palate fullness to this Saison’s floor malted barley backbone. Abbey-style character malts and our flavorful yeast strain develop complex dark fruit notes, while Styrian Golding hops bring a subtle counterbalance of bitterness. Unique yet rooted in tradition, our Winter Saison is ideally accompanied by foods with notes of cinnamon, citrus and nutmeg.

Blackberry Farms Alban Farmhouse Red...$16.99 / 750ml

“This special release was crafted in collaboration with John Alban, of Alban Vineyards.”
Inspired by the traditional Red and Brown Farmhouse Ales of the Flanders region of Belgium, this beer underwent a mixed culture fermentation and spent fourteen months aging in French Oak red wine barrels before being bottled. The resulting aged beer, blended with fresh beer of the same recipe at bottling, is crisp and tart with a light body, moderate carbonation, and complex notes of dark fruit, vinous oak and hints of sherry. This beer will continue to pleasantly age and evolve in the bottle when stored at proper cellar temperatures.

Blackberry Farms Brett Belgo IPA....$9.99 / 375ml
Barrel Series: A hoppy ale aged in red wine barrels. 

Blackberry Farm Buckwheat Strawberry....$9.99 / 375ml
Buckwheat Strawberry
A nutty and toasty farmhouse ale with notes of delicate fruit. 6.3% ABV

Blackberry Farm Blackberry Rye....$9.99 / 375ml
Blackberry Rye
“Dark fruit, tart, earthy”
This offering in our Native Series was brewed with select heritage barley and rye malts and fermented with a wild strain of native yeast harvested from honeysuckle blossoms found on Blackberry Farm’s 9,200 acre estate. A secondary fermentation with blackberries followed by additional aging in Tennessee whiskey barrels lends notes of dark fruit and oak to this medium bodied ale’s malt profile, accentuated by a mild tartness and earthy complexity from the wild native yeast.

Blackberry Farm Classic Saison...$13.99 / 750ml

Noble Cuvee Dry Hop
“Dry-Hopped Noble Saison”
Using our Classic Saison recipe as a base framework, our Noble Cuvee Dry Hop Saison features a dry hop addition of traditional European Noble hop varieties for pleasant earthy, herbal and spicy notes balanced by a light body, dry finish and crisp effervescence. Noble Hop varieties used for this release in the past have included German Select, German Tettnang, East Kent Golding, and French Triskel.
NOTE*specific hops used will vary with each new release
