Much Abu About Nothing

about this beer

Much Abu About Nothing is the beer that began our barrel aging program. It is easily one of our favorite beers. After carefully blending a variety of wild and barrel aged beers, we treat the blend to an aging period of four months on fresh Connecticut Raspberries from Bishops Orchards in Guilford.

This delicate, aromatic, and tart beer is visually captivating with its bright red, almost see-through, hue. Much Abu About Nothing is dominated by flavorful notes of ripe raspberries, akin to that of fresh homemade raspberry jam. The beer finishes dry and leaves a palpable thirst for more.

“Thou and I are too wise to woo peacefully”
-William Shakespeare

Riwaka™ is a hop I have been fascinated with ever since I first tried Hill Farmstead's Riwaka Pale Ale. I had been trying, for years, to source this hop, but it has never been available to United States home-brewers before this past winter. Thanks to Yakima Valley Hops, however, that changed. I immediately placed an […]
