A Note on This Beer
Aged over 12 months in small-batch craft gin barrels AND Sauvignon Blanc wine barrels AND layered with the lemon snap of wild souring cultures, Shady Oak Barrel House’s Grazing Good Farmhouse Ale sips like a refreshingly complex French 75 cocktail.
Drawing ties to the elegant mix of gin, lemon, and champagne, Grazing Good’s tart experience is fit for the brunch crowd. Its juniper and spearmint botanicals from the gin mesh gracefully with the pear and green apple notes of the wine. Brettanomyces and Lacto join forces for fresh squeezed lemon pucker, while the carbonated finish reminds the palate of smooth Cremant sparkling wine.
Shady Oak is generating some serious buzz in the California Wild Ale community: at an upcoming barrel festival, Grazing Good is one of the headliners featured alongside brews by de Garde, Almanac, and Deschutes. Come try one of the rising masters of Wild Ales at their most cocktail-esque with the French 75 essence of Grazing Good.
