    The World Beer Championships rated Capital Maibock 96 (platinum) and rivewed it as follows, "Clear amber color. Lively, toasty, fruity aromas of toasted citrus danish, roasted nuts, and honeycomb with a satiny, lively, fizzy, fruity sweet medium-full body and a tingling, layered, medium- long peppercorns and buttery baguette finish. A great mouthwatering bock that will be great at the table." This beer is often regarded as one of the Maibock styles' most noteworthy beers.

Newly Labeled Farmhouse Ale Commends Local Culture
Wednesday, January 20, 2016

    Baileys Harbor, WI - January 20, 2016 - Door County Brewing Company proudly
    announced today that their Pastoral Farmhouse Ale will be brewed with locally sourced barley and yeast. In addition they have re-labeled Pastoral in honor of Door County’s Belgian heritage.

    The familiar recipe will incorporate Door County grown barley as well as a new blend of yeast strains derived from the peninsula, which will produce a more complex beer, according to Head Brewer Danny McMahon. “Traditionally, farmers brewed these beers with whatever ingredients they had on hand,” said Head Brewer McMahon. “We’ve taken that mindset and started a program with local farmers and a Wisconsin based malting company to grow and malt our own barley.”

    The Door County barley program will provide malted barley to be used as their base malt for all of Door County Brewing Company’s saisons and farmhouse ales including Pastoral, Bière de Seigle, L’automne, L’hiver, L’ printemps and L’ete.

    Pastoral commemorates the Walloon agricultural heritage, the Belgian subculture prevalent in Southern Door County. To further honor this tradition, a portion of all Pastoral sales will be donated to Belgian Heritage Center in Namur, WI. Door County Brewing Company’s newly sourced and packaged Pastoral Farmhouse Ale can be found in stores throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota February 15.
