“Blonde beer, unfiltered, unpasteurized, and fermented in the bottle. This beer is brewed with only the four basic ingredients (water, malt, hops, yeast). Jandrain IV used different hops to give it its special character.”
“Hoppy farmhouse ale brewed with rye, oats, and wheat and hopped with Australian and American hops. Fresh, lively, and hoppy when young, this beer also benefits from a bit of aging to reveal its _Brettanomyces_ character of farmhouse funk.”

“We experimented with PROPagating different combinations of Belgian yeast CULTUREs and blending them in specific primary and secondary fermentations. We let the *Saccharomyces* cultures do the heavy lifting by converting the bulk of the wort sugars while the *Brettanomyces* cultures did the fine tuning to round out the flavor profile. The result of our experimentation led to PROP CULTURE, a project of 10+ yeast strains working together to create a fruit-forward collage of flavors such as pineapple, pear, mango, and banana balanced by a clove-like spiciness.”
