Backacre Beermakers

Backacre Beermakers

Address Work Weston VT 05161

Not a “brewery” in the common sense of the word, Backacre Beermakers may be the first example of a “blendery” in the United States. We work with nearby brewers to produce wort (unfermented beer) that we then take to our place for its long transformation into beer. From this stock we carefully blend a single product: BACKACRE Sour Golden Ale which is matured for more than a year in oak barrels and fermented with a mix of cultures that contribute unique and delicious flavors. .The idea of making wort at a central brewhouse and fermenting it in other places is a very old one, and still practiced in a few areas of Belgium and Germany. It allows a community to make more efficient use of its resources, especially for beers that are made in small volumes and take a great deal of time to produce.

No retail shop or visits are available on site.
