JänisSahti (Finnish-Style Juniper Ale) • 7.0% • Wild Oats
Sahti is a traditional beer style from Finland, brewed with a variety of malts, bright juniper berries, and resinous juniper boughs. It is one of the world’s oldest continuously brewed beers.
History & Style
Sahti has a history that goes back to the 16th century, when it was brewed in hand-made wooden vessels and filtered through juniper boughs. Our certified organic version of this ancient ale is brewed with barley, rye, and wheat malts, and flaked oats. Locally foraged juniper boughs were used to replicate the traditional brewing method, and organic juniper berries added in the boil. We first brewed Jänis in 2017 as an exclusive beer for Beau’s Oktoberfest. The label is inspired by Scandinavian design and the art of folk craft – Jänis is the Finnish word for hare.
Jänis pours deep orange with a white head. The aroma is a spicy medley of citrus, pepper and clove. The flavour is bright and refreshing, with elements of fruit and pepper. The finish is clean and crisp.
