History & Style

Mumme is a medieval ale that shares characteristics with a modern altbier. Return of the Mumme was first brewed in 2015 for Beau’s Oktoberfest, where it won “fan’s choice” at the festival and a place in the 2016 Mix Pack.

Tasting Notes

Pours a dark orange with a frothy tan head. Initial aromas of gingerbread and malt, and black licorice rise up from a subtle traditional hop aroma. Mouthfeel is smooth and slightly creamy, leaving a residual sweetness to balance the spices and the hops.

Food Pairings

Country-style paté with pistachios; caraway gouda; tourtière; ragout de pattes de cochon; English-style spiced beef.
