an english-style dark mild ale brewed with honey stinger waffles
Brewed in collaboration with our gnar shredding buds at Overmountain Cycles of Morganton NC and released for their annual Barn Burner MTN bike race which starts and finishes at our Whippoorwill Farm.
Mashed with a simple yet complex grain build consisting of local barley malt courtesy of our good friends at Riverbend Malt House of Asheville, NC along with a contemplative and traditional blend of the world’s finest caramel and crystal malts. Fermented with our preferred house English yeast strain for an ample body with a decidedly dry finish. As a playful treat for our cycling cohorts, we threw heaps of honey stinger waffles into the mash.
As brewers, an english dark mild is one of our very favorite styles of beer to consume. We’ve been lucky enough to consume dimple after dimple of traditional dark mild in England and are completely smitten with the style.
Expect notes of traditional snappy biscuits, caramel toffy and of course honey drenched waffles. With a low ABV of just 3.8%, this flavorful english treat is the perfect pre or post-ride crusher.
