Come pick up our new co-lab beer with
Dry River Brewing, Over Our Heads – Piquette Grisette.
Check out our e-store for more information
Piquettes and grisettes are low ABV beverages for French farmhands and Belgian miners, respectively. We teamed up with our LA River neighbors at Dry River Brewing to bring you all a refreshing little sipper. A small Farmhouse Saison fermented Grisette lays the foundation. We received a few hundred pounds of pressed, dry Syrah grape skins (aka pomace) from Angeleno Wine Company that was leftover from their wine making. The grisette was used to hydrate that grape pomace during a month-long maceration to extract some interesting tannins and piquette-like flavors. Finally, we aged the beer in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels for 9 months with a combination of Dry River and Angel City sour and mixed fermentation yeast cultures. The grape skin contact gave it a light pink/orange hue and aromas reminiscent of tangerines and dandelions with a touch of black pepper. This refreshing beer has a very soft sour note with hints of clove, star fruit, peach and oak.
