Dave's BrewFarm 2012 Autumn Brew Review Beers

"Somehow" I was never asked for the beers we'd be pouring at the 2012 Autumn Brew Review in Minneapolis this Saturday, SEP 15th. So here it is - hopefully you got your tickets and can make the fest. Should be a great event!

Sticking to our roots of using farm-fresh and unique ingredients in the LaBrewatory, this is our homage to the end of summer. You’ll delight in our Sour Orange Basil – Oh My Goodness! Pils and Ashburne Mild malts, Glacier and Ahtunum hops. Brown sugar, sour orange puree and late addition of fresh basil. 6.7% abv

"Eye. Pea. Eh?"
Farmer D finally did it! He brewed his first “IPA.” But, with the usual BrewFarm twists. Pils, Caramel 120 and Rye malts, German Tettnang and French Strisselspalt hops, with pureed pineapple, brown sugar and curry powder. Fermented with a Thames Valley yeast. Enjoy your journey to Indonesia. 8.0% abv

"BrewFarm Morning Blend"
Subtle blend of Pils and kilned Coffee malt, late addition of vanilla beans, with Golding and Fuggles hops. Fermented with Lager yeast. Perfect complement to our Breakfast Lager! 7.1 % abv

"Citra Single Hop Saison"
Pale, Rye and Ashburne Mild malts, and hopped with two additions of Citra hops. Fermented with French Saison yeast. 6.4% abv

"24K Saison"
Late summer seasonal. Pils and Victory malts and flaked Rye. Late addition of roasted carrot puree and brown sugar. Brewers Gold and Sterling hops. Fermented with a French Saison yeast. 7.7% abv

"Saison Rhu"
Pils, Caramel 20 and Dingemans Biscuit malts, Santium and Vanguard hops, fermented with a blend of Belgian Saison and Biere de Garde yeasts and a late addition of rhubarb puree. Crisp, with a hint of rhubarb in the nose and finish. 6% abv

"BrewFarm d'Elegance"
Inspired by one of our favorite Daves. Pils, Dark Munich and Wheat malts coupled with flaked barley, oats and wheat. Golding and Saaz hops, grains of paradise and orange peel. 9.9% abv

"The Bruiser"
Dedicated to P & G. This is our version of a smoked Wee Heavy. Copious amounts of pale malt and a pinch of smoked malt. Northern Brewer hops and classic Scottish yeast. Sláinte! 12% abv

Great showing at ABR! I tried almost everything you were pouring, and was very impressed. My wife, daughter, and I are planning to come out this Saturday; any chance you'll have some citra single hop saison? That one had to be my favorite. Keep up the good work; cheers!

Your Citra Saison was my vote for best at ABR! A-mazing!

I haven't finalized the draft line-up for the weekend but there is a *chance* the Citra SHS may make the scene. Who knows what treats lurk in the cold room???

I'll keep my fingers crossed! We'll be out regardless; looking forward to it. Thanks for the update.
