Astrolabe is a beer that will bring out in the kid in you, with 3,000 lbs of concord grapes it reminds one of grape juice and pb&j's on a summer afternoon. The flavor hits strong with an almost grape jelly taste and fades nicely with a slight vanilla and malty aftertaste that balances the sweetness of the grape. The aroma follows similarly with a strong grape smell that has some slight malt characteristics to it. 

An astrolabe is a device used to navigate the globe. It matches celestial bodies and their distance above the horizon with the time of year to pinpoint locations. Revered by sailors and adventurers for millennia, the astrolabe helps bring people and cultures together.
