Winey. La Di Da.
Fancy is our first Grape Ale! If you haven’t had a Grape Ale before, think of it as a wine-beer hybrid. It also comes in a dry hopped version called Extra Fancy.
Fancy is a blend of a tart pale ale and 700 litres of Gewurztraminer grape juice from our friends at Redtail Vineyards here in Prince Edward County.
We started with one ton of whole cluster grapes and let them sit on their skins for 7 days before being pressed. This left us with glorious orange “gew” juice that was blended into the beer and allowed to referment and condition.
Expect notes of tart lychee fruit, pineapple and elderflower with a dry, clean finish.
