Today at 4pm, we'll be releasing our latest batches of Noble King Hoppy Farmhouse Ale and El Cedro Hoppy Cedar-Aged Farmhouse Ale!
Noble King, along with Le Petit Prince, is about as simple, straightforward expression of place as we're capable of achieving through beer. We brew with well water and local grains, boil with noble varieties of hops, and ferment in stainless steel with our mixed culture. The result is a hoppy, bitter, dry, unspiced, well-attenuated, balanced, medium-strength farmhouse ale that we love to drink.
El Cedro is one of the earliest beers we brewed. We remember tasting a cedar-aged beer from Cigar City's Humidor Series, thinking it was really delicious, and decided we wanted to work with cedar as well. We thought the resinous, slightly evergreen aroma of the cedar would meld well with citrusy American hops. The funk from our mixed culture ended up adding an interesting over-ripened fruit note.
Noble King has an ABV of 5.9% and will be available by the glass and in bottles to go (750mL/$13). El Cedro has an ABV of 6.5% and will be available by the glass and in bottles to go (750mL/$14). There are no bottle limits on both Noble King and El Cedro.
