"Our new blended series came about so we can showcase how we take ingredients and techniques normally used to create other products such as wine and cider and apply those to our beers. First in the series is a beer/wine hybrid using Cab Sauv grapes from the Western slope of Colorado. We conducted a punch down on the grapes twice a day for two weeks and then let the beer rest on them for 6 months. We then removed the beer off the grapes and blended it once more with 25% of our golden sour base to create the final product."
"Golden Sour base beer aged for 6 months in used Zinfandel barrels, then added two pounds per gallon of fresh Palisade peaches to the barrels for an additional 6 months. Finally, an additional pound per gallon of peaches were added for two more months prior to bottling."

Barn Owl was created as a response to these lone wolves, and has grown into a diverse, ongoing series that reflects the growing diversity of our barrel program. The name is a nod to the wise and exacting animal that keeps watch over the farmhouse (er..industrial warehouse), and the one-off creations are released sporadically throughout the year, just as soon as we deem the barrels ripe for the picking."
"A symbol synonymous with Bellwoods Brewery; our White Picket Fence has undergone a complete overhaul and its re-envisioned form much better reflects the direction of our brewery.

Labour intensive in process, but rewarding in result. A complex, layered beer with perfect champagne-like carbonation to carry the lemon meringue aromatics, bright hop character, and rich brett notes. Refined and balanced acidity with lots of complimentary citrus.."
