Description 

Oak Brux is fermented with 100% brettanomyces bruxellensis yeast and aged four eight months in barrels made from no toast French oak heads and medium long toast American oak staves.

We appreciate the simplicity of this pale, hazy beer as an example of the American craft beer movement.
