Bayou Teche Miel Sauvage
In France, farmhouse breweries have crafted Biere de Miel for centuries – an ale brewed with an ample amount of local honey. Honeybees were long an emblem of French nobility and ultimately adorned Napoleon’s flag of exile. Miel Sauvage is Cajun French for wild honey and our Biere de Miel is fermented with honey from our neighbor, Bernard’s Apiaries and with barley imported from France. This sorrel colored beer has a pronounced honey aroma and is barrel aged to contribute a smooth vanilla darkness.
Honey wine, which tends to be quite strong and alcoholic-tasting, as honey ferments very well. Mead is often made with other ingredients for flavour, be they fruit or grain. The latter is known as braggot.
