For this winter’s beer, we wanted the ingredients to reflect the flavors of winter in Texas using quintessential Texas winter produce. Peeled & grated raw beets from Johnson’s Backyard Garden were added to the mash, & orange juice & zest from G & S Groves and fresh thyme from Pure Luck Farm were added to the whirlpool. It was then fermented in stainless steel with our unique mixed culture of microorganisms consisting of brewers yeast and native yeast & bacteria harvested from the air & wildflowers around our brewery in the Texas Hill Country. About six weeks into the fermentation, we added more peeled and grated raw beets, orange juice, and orange zest. Finally, the beer was naturally carbonated by refermentation in bottles, kegs, & casks.
