Farmhouse Ale with Sansho Pepper

アルコール度数/ABV: 4.7%


OH! is a farmhouse ale with Sansho pepper brewed in collaboration with Chef Yoshi Okai of Otoko in Austin. For OH!, we felt a duty to create flavors and harmony that would meld with his cuisine. To this end, we took Chef Yoshi up on his suggestion to use Sansho pepper, a common element in his cooking. From there, brewing and achieving balance with OH! was an exercise in restraint. We were tempted at multiple points throughout the creative and brewing process to add more ingredients and boldness of flavors. But in the end, throughout several test blends, we found a beer we believe beautifully integrates fermentation character, crisp Texas malt flavor, and a subtle floral/fruit character from the Sansho pepper.
