Provenance

about this beer

Provenance began as a vision towards the future of our wild ale program – spontaneously fermented wild ales. This beer marks the first spontaneously fermented beer to come from Dark Side Brewing. It was brewed on April 23rd, 2018 and bottled in June of 2019. It is a testament of patience, time, and biology. This beer follows in the footsteps of its Belgian predecessors – turbid mashed, made with aged hops, and coolshipped (cooled down outdoors while whatever yeast is in the air falls into it).

Upon first smell, you’re greeted by waves upon waves of peach flavors – not just ripe peach, but candied too. This beer is dominated by a palate of ripe peach, honeysuckle, wildflowers, and a solid oak backing. Provenance is meant to be shared, enjoyed, and reflected upon.

Marzen-Style Ale

I am a sucker for lagers. As my palate has changed over time, I've moved far away from hoppy IPAs and Pale Ales and more towards malt-forward lagers. However much I love the style of beer, the one factor in keeping me from brewing them is the fact I do not have a fermentation chamber […]

Riwaka

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 […]
