Casa Agria Specialty Ales
Notes: Bracero, is an American hoppy saison. Brewed with pilsner, rye, and Munich malts, and flaked wheat. It is initially fermented with a mix of Saccharomyces and Brettanomyces, and then oak aged in neutral red wine barrels prior to being modestly dry hopped with Nelson, Equinox, and Simcoe before packaging. Bracero, or laborer, is a nod to the many hard workers in the agricultural industry which is the heart of Ventura County. This beer is dry and refreshing with flavors of over-ripe tropical fruits from the Brettanomyces as well as flavor and aroma contributions of the hops. A beer to enjoy after a hard day’s work, as it was for the saisonniers of France and Belgium not long ago.
