about this beer

D’Alliance is the culmination of two years of our wild ale program – a Biere de Champagne. This beer started out as a Golden Strong Ale and refermented in the bottle. After refermentation, it was treated to the traditional champagne process known as riddling, or slowly flipping the bottles upside down to remove sediment. After a six week period of this, the bottles were opened, sediment was removed, and we repackaged for consumption.

This beer is effervescent and bubbly, carbonated well above normal beer levels. It is dominated by notes of white wine grapes, mangoes, and papaya.

Share this beer with loved ones, friends, and family. Drink it in celebration.
