Notes: First envisioned and created over a decade ago in partnership with longtime friend Will Meyers of Cambridge Brewing Co., Prolegomena is our interpretation of the Flanders red ale—the Burgundy of Belgium. The base of this, only the second edition, was brewed on December 24th, 2013, and May 8, 2014. This beer conditioned, slowly, in wood for between 32 months and three years, slowly developing acidity and harmonized layers of complexity from the introduction of wild yeast. With an extended bottle-conditioning of more than five years prior to release, this beer has seen a journey of more than 8 years from brew day to release.

During the 2017 season, we selected a number of beers, observing certain characteristics amongst them that indicated significant benefit from extended conditioning in bottle. Prolegomena was one of those chosen and now makes its debut. Significantly, this represents and highlights our unwavering commitment to shepherding each beer along its appropriate journey towards achievement—regardless of the time frame necessitated by the whim and whimsy of the natural process.
