Cherry Season

Congratulations to all our customers who have begun brewing beers with different herbs and spices. More experimentation is taking place every day and we are fortunate to occasionally be on the receiving end of a sampling session.

Thank you to our friend who let us sample his excellent turmeric and mandarin orange beer. If you missed the first round of mandarins, don’t sweat, the next variety will be coming into harvest soon. Just keep watching for them at the markets. The different mandarin varieties come into season at different times and the next ones will be along very soon.

At the moment the cherries are delicious and the cherries only stay in season for about 10 minutes so if you want any buy them NOW! It is easy to buy fruit when it’s in season and prepare it for brewing and then freeze it until you are ready to brew that particular beer. On the chance you are not ready immediately, that is. Cherries generally lend themselves well to darker beers, porters and stouts, as well as meads.

If you have a recipe that is so good you’d like to share it please let us know. We will spread the word.
