Feb. 15 Launch Experience & Feb. 22 Bottle Release — We’re releasing TWO very special beers from our Fruitful Pursuits collection. One is a spontaneous fermentation blend that refermented on Riesling. The other is a spontaneous and mixed fermentation blend that refermented on Quince. Both were made with the highest quality fruits from our friends at Steve & Dan’s Fresh BC Fruit, and will be released at the same time.

Fruitful Pursuits Riesling

Fruitful Pursuits Riesling 2022 is a Spontaneous Fermentation blend refermented on fresh Riesling grapes. We used hundreds of kilograms of the highest quality wine grapes grown by Nathan Goltz in the Similkameen Valley BC and supplied by our friends Steve & Dan’s Fresh BC Fruit. The blend of 1, 2 & 3 year barrels spent 2 months in contact with the crushed whole fruit and skins where it undergoes a second fermentation. This is a true hybrid of beer and wine that showcases the diverse flavours of Riesling and the depth & complexity of spontaneous fermentation. The grapes bring citrus, apple, light pepper & floral flavours to the blend, highlighted by wine like acidity, round texture, and subtle tannin.

Our team processed hundreds of kilograms of Riesling back in October of 2022.

Fruitful Pursuits Quince

Fruitful Pursuits Quince 2022 is a blend of both Mixed & Spontaneous Fermentation barrels refermented on quince. This super unique fruit was suggested to us by the team at Steve & Dan’s Fresh BC Fruit and has quickly become a favourite. The blend of 1, 2 & 3 year barrels spent 2 months refermenting with hundreds of kilograms of fully ripe quince. The fruit adds a punchy flavour and aroma that is intensely floral, honey, and pear-like. It brings exceptional texture with a full and velvety tannin structure that coats the palate, complimented by the poppy acidity and ester fruitiness of the blend.
