Rural Animal is our take on a classic wallonian table beer – light, crisp, refreshing, and sessionable. This beer is brewed with 100% “old world” hops for bittering, aroma, and flavour and a mixture of BC grown barley malt, unmalted wheat, and a touch of caramelized malted oats to create a beer that definitely punches above its weight-class on flavour and body. The delicate spice flavours of the hops are balanced by the fermentation character of our favourite saison strain and inoculation at packaging by our favourite strains of brettanomyces.
We named this beer Rural Animal as an homage to the field workers of Wallonia and elsewhere, past and present. Crisp, drinkable, no-nonsense beer for for any beast after a long day of burden. This is a beer we brewed because it represents a style we ourselves greatly enjoy after a day’s work, and we hope you enjoy it too!
This beer is another example of our continuing commitment to providing truly local beer brewed, fermented, hand-bottled, and naturally carbonated in those bottles on-site at our brewery at 3314 Appaloosa Rd.
