Spontaneous Beer + Pale + Barrel Aged

Unique Aspect

The wort is cooled overnight in the winter months using outside air temperature in a traditional, large shallow vessel know as a coolship. In our case, being based on a dairy farm, we use ex-Cheddar vats. During the cooling process, naturally occurring microflora from the air inoculates the beer. In the morning, it is transferred into oak barrels where the entire fermentation and maturation takes place over many months. Coolship 2021 is a blend of this one, two and three-year old spontaneously fermented beer.

Food Pairings

Flavour notes of rich stone fruits, particularly peaches and apricots are throughout the aroma and flavour, with a clean, dry, and lingering finish. This blend has a juicy body and balanced acidity that will contrast perfectly with a classic carbonara.
