I am an architect, turned winemaker, turned brewer. My beer started as an experiment for fun.  It is made entirely from ingredients I grew or foraged with my family. Next to our vineyards we planted an ancient strain of barley we malt ourseves planted an ancient strain of barley we malt ourseves over a wood fire. The hops are collected from the banks of the local river "Algeti." We always fall in. The water we use is from a spring next to the wine cellar. We add lees (yeast) from our wines to the fermenting beer and then a small amount of grape juice at bottling for bottling conditioning. The result is refreshing, aromatically complex beer with fruity/malty flavors and a particular crispness. A beer for wine lover.
