The days are getting shorter, cooler, and damper, and that can only mean one thing for a passionate team of brewers like the ones here at Talking Cedar: It’s time to brew a fall-friendly beer.
Our Harvest Ale is a nod to the traditional German-style Oktoberfest beers, with one key difference. Most Oktoberfest beers typically undergo a fairly lengthy laagering or aging process. We conceived of our recipe somewhat recently and wanted it done in time for our fans to enjoy as the seasons changed, so we opted for the shorter brewing process.
If you are a lover of a malty flavor profile, you are going to love this beer. This ale is rich and biscuity with an approachable, mid-range ABV between seven and eight percent. “It’s dark, but not too dark,” says Ryan, our quality control lab technician. We’ve used malt imported from Germany to keep the flavors true to tradition, and the modest quantity of hops used in the brewing process were grown in Germany as well.
We think you’re going to love the caramelly addition to the lineup of world-class beers on tap here at our pub in Grand Mound. We would also like to announce our Autumn Harvest Giveaway, order a pint of our Harvest Ale with one of our meals* and receive a free Talking Cedar Pint Glass!
