Torches Volume 2
Mixed culture ale brewed with botanicals
Introducing our second installment in this series of botanical-inspired beers, Torches Volume II is an embodiment of the sun. Brewed in collaboration with Brit Josa, the botanical badass behind Torches Ceremonial, of Black Mountain, North Carolina.
Mashed with local pilsner malt courtesy of Riverbend Malt House of Asheville, North Carolina along with heaps of flaked rye. Steeped on a menagerie of local/foraged botanicals, inspired by one of Brit’s mainstay smoke blends. Those botanicals include mullein, nettles, catnip, holy basil and calendula. Fermented with our mixed house cultures in one of our beautiful Missouri oak foeders. Aged on additional amounts of holy basil and conditioned naturally in the bottle and keg.
