A Note on This Beer
Sometimes, we get a beer that defies classification. And every beer from Garden Path Fermentation falls firmly into that category.
The brewers only use hyper-local ingredients, and ferment their beers naturally with wild, local yeasts. But because Washington’s Skagit Valley rarely gets warm enough for sour-making microbes to grow, their beers are far less tart than typical Wild Ales. They’re nuanced, subtle, and incredibly drinkable.
And since they allow their wild culture to develop naturally, each sip represents the preserved essence of a specific time in the valley, and no two batches are ever the same.
If you want to explore Garden Path’s unique creations, today’s Honey Tripled Triple Ferments is a beautiful starting point.
It’s a Barrel-Aged Golden Wild Ale made with local blackberry honey, but almost all the sugar is fermented out to create an ultra-smooth 9.5% ABV brew with very little sweetness. In one sip, you might find floral notes and a bit of tart tang. In the next, you could discover drops of honey and lingering wild funk.
It’s not a beer that reveals itself immediately — it begs to be explored, teasing you along from one flavor to the next.
Open a bottle with a good friend. Take the time to really investigate its secrets. When you finish, you might just find yourself opening another.
