The Ale Apothecary The Beer Formerly Known as LA TACHE793573141521
The Ale Apothecary creates totally natural, barrel-aged beer using ingredients off our land or sourced nearby, direct from Oregon farms. We get our grain from Mecca Grade Estate Malt in Madras, Oregon. Our hops primarily come from Goschie Farms in Silverton. We naturally carbonate our beer in the bottle with Oregon wildflower honey and try to avoid any and all industrial processing aids or commodity ingredients. With the raw, soft water that comes out of the ground, with the wild airborne yeasts we share with the trees, we make hand-made beer without the fingerprint of industrialization.
LA TACHE is made of malted barley & wheat and Goschie Farms Cascade Hops. The hops are used only for aroma as the balance of the beer comes from acid produced by our house lactobacillus culture. She spends 3-9 months in our barrels during a long, relaxed fermentation prior to a month-long dry-hopping (yes, in oak barrels!). Our sensory experience is lemon citrus & fermented orchard fruit nose over earthy undertones. The palate finishes with soft lactic acid balanced by the malt body.
