Commercial Description: Life is nothing without sharing. Laughter, a good story or even your favourite beer are all better in the company of others. This is definitely the case with our Bière de Garde, a farmhouse ale from Northern France. Traditionally made in the winter or spring for the coming summer, our de Garde has a straw-like colour, slight spice and a dry finish. It’s name literally means “beer for keeping” but why not share it with a friend?
