Ocho Happy Place

Style
Mid-Strength Farmhouse Ale

If there's something new to play with, or perhaps unusual, recent history suggests Stu Grant at Ocho will be itching to get his hands on it. And so it is with kveik, a Norwegian farmhouse yeast strain that first passed our lips a couple of months back courtesy of Lightning Axe from Tallboy & Moose. It's a strain that can be pushed to ridiculously high temperatures and can, in turn, fire out pretty dense fruity characters.

In Ocho's case, it's been applied to a mid-strength that's cloudy as all hell and has a rich textural quality for a beer of its size. There's a pretty punch fruit aroma – tropical and a side of pear – and a body that's both pillowy yet light (one concession to the "mid"), plus a decent bitterness from the Centennial and Simcoe hops too. Certainly, a far cry from your common or garden mid-strength.
