Daniel Addey-Jibb, co-owner and brewer at Le Castor joins us for The Session on this episode. Located about 40 minutes outside of Montreal, Quebec, Dan and his team brew some really amazing farmhouse beers for those lucky enough to find them. Many are aged and bottled with Brett, giving them even more complexity than normal.
His core style seems to be Saison, but he switches it up by adding different ingredents, such as Grapefruit zest and cracked peppercorns, sour cherries, oak – all of which are Brett-finished. The beers were great, and Dan was very generous with his time and beer.
Then our friends from FourPure out in London happened to be in the studio, and shared their “juicy” IPA with us – which was not cloudy and soupy at all and we thanked them profusely for this.
