American Wild Ale
This spontaneously fermented beer gains a unique profile thanks to its time in bourbon barrels. After allowing the wort to rest overnight in our coolship—a room-sized rectangular pan—we ferment and age it in bourbon barrels rather than the more traditional French oak wine barrels. Coolship Clermont features a bright copper hue and aroma of oak, malt, light funk, and citrus. Its mildly tart flavor profile contains notes as varied as tropical fruit, lemon, and bourbon. Though the barrels come from Clermont, Kentucky, the beer’s soul is pure Maine.
