Schlafly's Bière de Garde is a traditional French farmhouse ale, with burnt orange coloring. Four different types of malt create a toffee sweetness, while French Strisselsplat hops add a subtle spice flavor. The beer is fermented with a distinct French farmhouse ale strain, and is then bottle-conditioned with extra sugar and yeast for at least two weeks.
Bière de Garde translates to “beer which has been kept or stored”. This traditional, artisan farmhouse ale from Northern France was brewed in early spring and stored in cold cellars for consumption in warmer months. While related to its spicier, tarter Belgian cousin Saison, Bière de Garde is a richer, sweeter beer.
