This beer is a collaboration with Shef Shaun of The Purple Plate, brewed specially for Fresh Fest, which is Pittsburgh’s first Black beer festival. It is a well-attenuated (dry) ale brewed with spelt, oats, and rye, and it is fermented with our favorite Belgian yeast. We added fennel seed and fennel pollen after fermentation to invoke an herbal, black licorice note that is assertive but fading.
