I like to have a lot of this beer on hand for the end of September and beginning of October, when I am usually harvesting my hops and late vegetables. There can be very warm days in Vermont in the fall, and this is an extremely crisp, rich thirst quencher. Its sourness, like that of hard cider, cools off the thirstiest hop picker. It also pairs well with venison and other fresh game.
