From Niagara Oast House Brewers,

The Barn Raiser celebrates the neighbourly spirit in helping each other out. A “Barn Raiser” is a tradition where the community rallies to help a farmer build a barn in a day. They then celebrate with a big Ol’ shindig! So hey, next time your friends give you a hand, toast ’em with an Oast!

Our Country Ale delivers a rich, golden colour with a hop forward, citrusy character.

Appearance | Golden orange with a nice white head.

Smell | Fruity (mainly peaches) and hops.

Taste | Crisp, hops, grapefruit, citrus, and sweet malts.

Aftertaste | Dry with lingering notes of citrus and hops.

Overall | This is a refreshing, medium-bodied ale that is thick, fruitful, and hoppy. This ale is a great session beer that one can enjoy after a day of labour-intensive work (like, raising a barn, perhaps?). It would compliment a relaxing evening spent watching hockey or outside on a warm evening.  The Barn Raiser Country Ale is the flagship beer of Niagara Oast House Brewers.   If you’re in Niagara-on-the-Lakes area, check out Oast House Brewers, you really can’t miss the big red barn on Niagara Stone Road.

Available at the brewery and on tap wherever it’s available.
