Freckled Mary

about this beer

Freckled Mary is a blend of our barrel fermented wild ales that was aged on an obscene amount of Bishop’s Orchards blueberries for three months.

This beer pours a thick and rich deep purple in color and has an intense aroma of blueberry cobbler. Its flavor profile is dominated by a huge mouthful of ripe blueberries, concord grapes, blackberries, and boysenberries.

Freckled Mary is the quintessential expression of our wild ale program for the end of summer into early fall. It is a refresher that will help one get through the waning days of warmth and into the brisk months ahead.
