Working on the farm isn’t what it used to be, what with all of the fancy newfangled industrial equipment and commercial-sized plots of land. Drinking like you’re on the farm, however, is still possible, thanks to farmhouse ales. A farmhouse ale is not a single style of beer. It’s actually a broader category of styles. It can be a saison, bière de garde, gueuze, or sahti.
Despite some initial misgivings about devoting a hot, sunny afternoon to drinking several dozen 2-ounce beer samples with a couple thousand sweaty strangers, I spent Saturday afternoon at the Boston rendition of Sierra Nevada’s roving Beer Camp festival, and I’m glad I did. I like this sort of event in general, but maybe not always quite as much as the next beer writer does.
