Wasting little time after the release of the second beer in its one-off saison series, Westbrook is gearing up to brew the third entry of its Bearded Farmer line.
According to Assistant Brewer Mike Levin, Bearded Farmer No. 3 will be brewed in Mt. Pleasant this week. No word on how it’ll differ from the first two entries – Hughey and McCullough – but as before, you can probably expect a unique mix of ingredients.
Hughey was brewed with oat, rye and spelt and fermented with Belgian and French yeast strains, including three types of Brettanomyces. McCullough used pilsner and rye malts, was spiced with white, green and pink peppercorns and then also fermented with three Brett strains.
