Gathering Place Brewing Company will release The Fur Trader Saturday, May 19th on draft and a limited number of bottles.

The Fur Trader is the meeting point between Saison, Biere de Garde and Helles Bock, and is as unique and colorful as its namesake, Milwaukee founder Solomon Juneau. Biscuity and honey maltiness are bridged at odd angles by a moderate bitterness with peppery and citrus hop notes. 7.3% ABV 33 IBU.

“Let me just say, I love Biere de Garde! It is a highly underrated beer style,” said Head Brewer Corey Blodgett. “My take on this classic style is a mixed fermentation with half the batch fermented in Sauv Blanc barrels and uses 3 different yeast strains. To finish off we dry hopped with Mandarina Bavaria and Crystal Hops. à votre santé!”

The Fur Trader is the third bottle release from Gathering Place. Two hundred 750 mL bottles will be available for sale for in the tap room beginning at 12 pm on the 19th. The bottles will be $12 each with a limit of three per person.

“Our latest bottle release honors one of Milwaukee’s founding fathers and its first mayor, Solomon Juneau,” said Gathering Place founder Joe Yeado. “He came to Milwaukee as a fur trader and left an indelible mark on our city.”

Gathering Place Brewing Company is an independent brewery in the Riverwest neighborhood dedicated to crafting vibrant and unique beers that reflect the vibrant and unique community it calls home.
