Brewery: Mills Brewing
Style: Farmhouse Grisette
Other Notes: Mills Brewing make beer with minimal modern intervention, relying on local wild yeast cultures and the influence of nature to ferment
Brewer Description: (from bottle) Grisette Perry was made from a turbid mash containing barley and oats. The resulting wort was hopped with Sorachi Ace in the boil and Amarillo in the coolship. Fermentation took place in a single ex-Scotch barrel with juice from Gloucestershire grown Gin perry pears. The finished beer was primed with Conference pear juice to provide the sugars for bottle conditioning.
