We're pleased to announce that we will be releasing our latest batch of Figlet today! Figlet is a farmhouse ale refermented with Texas figs smoked by our friends at Franklin BBQ.
For this year’s Figlet, we sourced 200 pounds of figs from Little Om Farm in Elgin, Texas. Those figs were taken to Franklin BBQ where they were split in half before smoking. By doing this, more surface area was exposed, resulting in a higher concentration of smoke in the figs. We found that this resulted in what we consider to be a more balanced beer overall.
Batch 5 Figlet is 5.4% alcohol by volume and was packaged in mid September. It will be available by the glass and in bottles to go (750ml/$14) at our tasting room and restaurant.
We will be offering a pairing from our kitchen for Figlet. It is a fig leaf creme brûlée with chocolate & cranberry smoked granola!
We hope you enjoy!
