Garden Path Fermentation Releases The Fruitful Barrel Tayberries, a Fruity Native Yeast Ale
Garden Path Fermentation announces the release of their newest beer, The Fruitful Barrel Tayberries, a native yeast ale refermented with Skagit Valley tayberries sourced from Lenning Farms in Mount Vernon, bottle and keg conditioned with local blackberry honey, and aged for ten months in bottles and kegs prior to release. Commercially, Skagit County grows less than ten acres of these special fruits, a cross between a blackberry and a red raspberry, which typically demand harvesting by hand due to their very soft texture when ripe. This beer has a balanced but complex yeast character and a refreshing, bright, fruity expression of these unusual summer berries. The Fruitful Barrel Tayberries will be available for sale at Garden Path’s taproom beginning Friday, January 22 as well as throughout the region and beyond. Please visit our online store for local pickup, regional delivery, or in-state shipping or email us to inquire about availability in your area.
