Stone City Ales Two Smoking Bushels
We are pleased to introduce you to Two Smoking Bushels, a 5.5% Apfel Rauchweizen (aka a smoked, German wheat beer conditioned on apples). This unique style is influenced by the rauchbiers of Bamberg, Germany where it has been been brewed for nearly two centuries. This unique and complex beer is distinctive in its smoky flavour imparted by, in our case wheat malt that we’ve smoked over applewood. To balance out the strong smoky flavours we conditioned this ale on locally picked apples for a subtle tart fruitiness. It’s traditional yeast profile lend spicy notes of clove and banana rounding out this creative brew. This is a great beer for the cooler weather ahead that also happens to pair perfectly with hearty autumn fare.
The classic smoked beers hail from Bamberg in Franconia, Germany. These are made using malt that has been smoked over beechwood. The insistent smokiness may be applied to any lager style. In North America, the same technique has been used to make smoked porter. Whiskey malt beers are made using peat-smoked malt.
