Matron Fine Beer
Type: Farmbier with Cranberry & Spruce Tips
Region, Country: PEC, Ontario, Canada
Size: 335 ml
Merrymaker is a beer that is near and dear to our hearts, it started back in 2012 as a holiday home-brew made for friends and has transitioned with us over the years to a commercial scale for you to share with yours. We’ve adapted this recipe to reflect Matron’s ethos of locally sourced ingredients and a more modest ABV.
This beer is festively made using cranberries and spruce tips, it is balanced and ultimately (very) drinkable. Expect elegant spice notes on the nose, a pleasant tartness coming entirely from our use of cranberries that will leave you with graceful undertones of spruce playing in its finish. Blah, blah, blah -- its so good it's not even funny.
This beer is a very limited release and will not be back again until next December!
Numbers: 6.9% / 355ml / 80% Ontario ingredients, 20% Canadian
Pairs well with: gaiety, festive enthusiasm, revelry but also cheeses, turkey dinner and most desserts.
Local Ingredients: We’ve dubbed Merrymaker a Farmbier, utilizing exclusively Barn Owl Malts, Pleasant Valley’s hops, and its fermented our house Saison strain from Escarpment yeast on Quebec cranberries and foraged spruce tips.
