What Once Was Lost

Another release from Wunderkammer, and what’s more, their first foraged offering since moving into the cozy, new space in Albany, Vermont.

Found Object 1 is an oat based beer brewed in the waning months of winter, snowshoeing into the woods by the brewhouse to gather up pine needles to add into the boil. After cooling overnight in the coolship and fermentation with mixed culture this beer was conditioned in oak for a few months and moved onto pine tips when they emerged this spring. The result is a light golden table beer with a light soft wood and ginger-like lift.

500mL Bottle | $12.99

**Limit Four(4) Bottles Per Person, Per Day**

1.5L Bottle | $53.99

Stop in this Friday to try a little of everything!
