Kent Falls Brewing Co. Debuts In Media Res Farmhouse Ale

Kent Falls Brewing Co. out of New York City has announced the release of a new limited-release beer, a wine barrel-aged Farmhouse Ale called In Media Res.

The beer is a collaboration between Kent Falls and Oxnard, California's Casa Agria that was brewed in August of 2017 featuring Chardonnay grape must and juice from a local vineyard.

The full release from Kent Falls is below.


A Very Special Day in Our Tasting Room

"In Medias Res" is the literary tool of beginning a story in the middle of a narrative. It is also the name of the first oak fermented farmhouse ale that we will be releasing in bottles this Thursday.

After three and a half years as our Head Brewer, Derek will soon be focusing exclusively on his writing career as he heads across the country for his fourth book; covering the best day hikes the continental US has to offer. We are extremely proud of all Derek has accomplished here and excited for what lies ahead for him as well as Zac, who will be promoted to head brewer upon Derek's departure.

To cap off Derek's last week he will be behind the bar this Thursday, pouring a special selection of beers from our cellar.

In Medias Res is a collaboration with our friends at Casa Agria. Zac was equally instrumental in forming this relationship as in the production of this beer. Brewed last August, it is a wheat farmhouse ale fermented in wine barrels and conditioned on Chardonnay grape must and juice from a local vineyard. Bottled in January, and finally ready for release there could be no more appropriate moment in time to do so than this week; in name, in context or simply to enjoy out on our patio on a beautiful day.
