Cloud Mountain Farm Center, with a culture of sharing not only its food and vibrantly growing plants, but also deep-rooted knowledge of food and farming, shares a common interest with Boundary Bay Brewery in nourishing the people in our community. That's why we're proud to have partnered with Cloud Mountain for many years, bringing fresh fruits and vegetables into our kitchen and restaurant from right here in Whatcom County. Last month, we visited Cloud Mountain Farm Center to witness just how they do it!
In it’s third year of existence, Citraweisse is now in cans! A mildly tart kettle-soured brew created with sustainability and local agriculture in mind, this beer is incredibly sessionable and cautions of summer adventures ahead!
The road to Citraweisse was uncharted for Boundary Bay Brewery. Setting out to experiment with varied microbes in search of new flavors, we split a portion off from Steady as She Gose prior to adding seawater, (Steady as She Gose is a Gose-style beer created with seawater deep from the Salish Sea,) and dry-hopped it with Citra to become Citraweisse.
How many medals does it take to weigh down a brewery? That sounds a bit like a trick question, doesn't it? Lucky for us, our brewery walls are old and as strong as they come, with the backbone to withstand the weight of a few shiny pieces. Adding new medals to the walls feels a little less like victories and more like a collection of history, a story of where we've been and a reflection of who we are.
