an oak-aged saison


Almota is a showcase of oak and specialty grain varieties, all malted by our friends in Spokane at LINC Malt. Starting with a base of Francin Pilsen, which was then fortified with Elwha River Spelt, we added raw Red Russian Wheat and Purple Egyptian to round out the malt bill with a robust texture and rustic dough-like character.

The second aspect of Almota comes from an extended rest in oak providing time for our house yeast culture to mature giving way to notes of stone fruit and Meyer lemon merging the yeast character with the texture and body of the oak.

The end result is something we’re proud of: a dry, balanced farmhouse ale with a higher level of refreshing bitterness than our other offerings with the addition of Hallertau Mittelfruh and Hallertau Blanc. Additionally, Almota puts on display the importance of oak-aging in our beers without any adjuncts – and it wouldn’t exist without the amazing specialty grains and maltsters we’re privileged to work with here in Washington state.  Almota is named after a spot on the Snake River not far from Joseph’s Grainery.
