ONCEMADE Beer from Pintley
ONCEMADE is a seasonal collaboration pairing two unforgettable, single-batch beers from local artisan brewers. Release #1 features two Wild Saisons from Night Shift Brewing and Backlash Beer.
Backlash's beer—a pale saison with a pilsner and wheat malt base—is a minimalist 6% ABV beer with Nugget and Willamette hops. Night Shift's red saison—boasting a complex malt bill that includes caramel, wheat, rye, and acid malts—will reach over 8% ABV and features Saaz and Willamette hops, as well as agave nectar added to the end of the boil.
Both beers underwent primary fermentation with a traditional saison yeast before aging for two months in a combination of oak barrels. The brewers selected local red wine barrels from Les Trois Emmes Winery in New Marlborough Massachusetts and classic brandy barrels from southern California. The beers are aged on farm-grown Massachusetts raspberries with added Brettanomyces yeast.
