Ottavia Barrel Aged Blended Beers


A Blend of Mixed Fermentation Barrel Aged Beers

Tasting Notes: Carolina is a blush-hued beer that has a vinous and spice aroma, followed by flavours of pear and rose petal with a citrus pith finish. Carolina is intriguing and sophisticated with balanced acidity.

Story Behind the Beer: Ottavia & Carolina, named after two of the owner’s twin daughters, are complex and playful beers that brings together grain and grape in a nod to the Italian Grape Ale style. Using the same base beers, with varying proportions, these beers were carefully blended to create variations that are uniquely their own. Borrowing process techniques from winemaking to incorporate the use of Pinot Noir grapes with a mixed-culture barrel-aged golden ale allowed us to elevate each ingredient.
