Field Meadow Stream Grisette

Field Meadow Stream is a light, dry, delicately flavoured farmhouse ale meant to satisfy your thirst on a sunny afternoon. It’s brewed with equal parts Pilsner and wheat malt, along with a generous amount of oats. Finally, it’s dry-hopped with the very unique Sorachi Ace hop, offering notes of fresh lemon and dill. At 4.4%abv it’s a light, approachable beer perfect for welcoming in summer with open arms.

This year’s Field Meadow Stream returns for Canada Day at the brewery retail store & online store!

Brendan’s Take

I wanted to make something light and refreshing that was highly drinkable without skimping on flavour. The saison-like grisette fits that bill. I also love the origin story behind this style. It was first brewed centuries ago as a refreshing beverage for Belgian and French coal miners. My idea behind this beer was to keep things simple, using only the basic ingredients to create something unique and enjoyable. The name is inspired by a book from Karl Ove Knausgaard, discussing progress and the simple, unchanging alternatives to progress, “… machines grew in number, speeds increased and ever greater areas of old lifestyle were abandoned, but no one dreamed of discarding beer or changing it. Malt, hops, water. Field, meadow, stream.” Cheers!
