WAX POETIC | Council Brewing

Our collaboration with Council Brewing, Wax Poetic, is a mixed fermentation Farmhouse Ale with avocado blossom honey that clocks in at 8.9% abv.

"Starting with a base of bready Pilsner malt, this Brett Saison is accompanied by flaked rye to add a grainy character as well as provide body. The addition of earthy, floral hops supply both bittering and aroma.

A blend of traditional farmhouse yeast and Brettanomyces strains give this bottle conditioned brew a fun evolution from fruit to funk, that will continue to evolve with each season.

Last but certainly not least, over 60 pounds of avocado blossom honey from local Mikolich Family Honey help dry out the beer and add a rich herbal note. Drink up!"

UPDATE! This beer has aged so beautifully we interviewed the brewers to see what's happening in the bottle to influence such change.
