Almanac Beer Co.—A Farm to Barrel Brewery

By CraftBeer.com

In this video, Jesse Friedman and Damian Fagan share the story of  Almanac Beer Company, a brewery dedicated to producing seasonal artisan ales, brewed specifically to complement local cuisine sourced and prepared with the same great care and craft.

Almanac works on a partner brewing system, in which they sublet time at a large-scale brewery to help brew their beer. Almanac’s recipes are formulated on a homebrew system (5 gallons) and then scaled up to production level at the larger facility.

This is the story of their first beer; Summer 2010 Vintage Blackberry Ale, a Belgian Strong Golden Ale made with 260 pounds of blackberries from Sebastopol Berry Farm.
