Whew, a lot went into making this beer: The Messorem crew visited Slake in November 2022 for the beginning of this collaboration. They brought their mixed culture of yeast and the two brewed some beer and let it do its thing in stainless steel for six months. After it developed some nice complexity, Slake added some of their beer that had been aging with their mixed culture. Slake left that beer to sit in stainless to blend together and finish maturation for an additional six months. Slake knew that they wanted to add some wine to the blend so they talked to their friends at Paradise Grapevine and added a full barrel of skin contact sauvignon blanc. The beer and wine sat for a couple of months to coalesce at which point it was given a gentle dry hop with Motueka hops that complemented the citrus notes that were already apparent in the blend by adding a little more lime character. While it is very hard to sum up this beer in a couple of words; it’s delicious.
