Located in the small country town of Dunham, Quebec, about thirty minutes from the Vermont border, is Brasserie Dunham. Brewmaster Eloi Deit, formerly of Quebec’s famous Le Cheval Blanc, took over the struggling little brewpub as a temporary moonlighting gig. Before he knew it, he had cleaned house, ditched the recipes, and when the sun came up, he had created something truly special.
These days, Brasserie Dunham is known for a wide variety of beers, but especially their saisons and barrel aged beers. Surrounded by fruit farmers, honey producers, cideries, and wineries, Eloi’s geography is not unlike Hill Farmstead, and the effect it has on his mindset as a brewer is similarly nuanced. Beautiful, fluffy, balanced beers that are bright and full of flavor.
A Göse (slightly salty and acidic wheat beer) with kaffir lime leaf and star fruit. The exotic character of the star fruit completes the slightly floral and citrusy aroma of the kaffir leaf to create an original and refreshing brew. The starfruit is the main player on the palate, while the lime leaf and salt are more background.
