The third cuvee in our ongoing collaborative project with Dane and Hannah of Momento Mori wines. These beers are made without the addition of our house culture and instead see uninoculated wort pitched on top of fermented, macerated, pressed grape skins from the making of their wines. These 'Common Ground' beers are genuinely a place where both of our practices meet, uninoculated grapes to make wine, lightly pressed post maceration sent to us in order to recommence that native ferment on wort soaking up the flavour/phenolics left in the grapes and showcase the flavours from the wine microflora.

This ale was made back in 2020 with the skins of Greco grapes which spent 10 months macerating to make MM's 'Give up the Ghost' 2020. After the skins were lightly pressed and sent to us, we pitched our Gold wort on top of them and allowed the resident yeast to commence and complete the beer fermentation. The beer and skins soaked together for 8 months before bottling in June 2021 and naturally conditioning through refermentation before release. 

Meesh's tasting notes - Pours a light straw, with aromas of melon, peach and pineapple bursting out of the glass. Salinity is present on the nose alongside a bright vinous note. It is round and full on the palate, with direct acidity and a moreish grippy, salty finish. There's a note of skinsy spiciness there as well. Overall it's bringing the pineapple juice vibes. Grab the oysters. 

100 bottles available online - limit 6 per person.
