Maitrise (“May-treese”; translates from French as “expertise” or “mastery”) is a “new world imperial farmhouse ale” created from a blend of American and German wheat and barley malts, Nelson Sauvin hops and French saison yeast. The beer weighs in at a surprising 9.5% ABV and 80 IBU. “Brilliant with tropical fruit, yet balanced with a tart palate that finishes soft and dry.”
Taproom launch Saturday at noon – $5/12 oz pour; $18 growlers. As with all Garage Series releases, it will only be around for a short time.
