This is made from some heritage varieties of barley. These different varieties were grown together in the field as a diverse polyculture – sometimes referred to as a population – along with some wheat, rye, oats and other grains. These grains can be grown in a way in which the farmer does not need to use fertilisers, nor pesticides, herbicides and fungicides, and in a system which can build soil. It’s a look to the past, but could also be a future of grain production.
The grains bring a lot of complexity and depth to the beer, which has more sweetness, gentle acidity, and plenty of interesting fermentation aromatics.
