about this beer

Rosie is a deeply special beer, it was born from an incredibly dear lifelong friendship and our want to combine our two passions - winemaking and brewing. We created a specially selected blend of beers, which created a vibrant base layered with notes of meyer lemon, wildflowers, and citrus pith. The blend was refermented on a mix of South African Syrah and Lodi Chardonnay grapes, pressing a portion of the grapes, and using a portion of them whole. The grape portion lends itself a rich, jammy, complex flavor, threaded with notes of ruby port, blackberry, leather, white grapes, and stone fruit.

Rosie is made with love. It is a dream beer.

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 […]
