A beautiful proto-fall day, Peter Sheppard making a major lunch of a Chorizo and Black Bean Tortas, a little music and a wonderful try at a new beer experiment. Gregg Van Citters gifted the club his historical Haarlem Bokbier. Made with a malt bill comprised two-thirds (67%) of the grains that scare most brewers: Oat Malt, Rye Malt and Wheat Malt.

Also showing up was the earlier version of this beer, as brewed by Mr. Van Citters. The end result winds up a spicy, chewy, slightly darker version of a tripel. The oat malt, an ingredient that we had shipped in from North Country Malt, is an odd rare bird of a grain. The malt carries a nuttier version of the round, fatty chewy character that folks call for in oats.
