Hare & Ke - Ke2

Belgian Ale with Sencha green tea from Hori Shichimeien, one of Uji's most well known tea producer

[Character]
Sencha green tea accentuates the earthy and floral bitterness and flavor contributed by hops without overpowering the beer, while our house Belgian ale yeast contributes a unique fruity character.
[Food Pairing]
Grilled Salmon, root vegetables
[Naming]
Hare to Ke expresses the concept of the "special" as opposed to the "everyday." Ke was made with Sencha and is meant to be enjoyed as a daily drinking beer.
[Brewer's Voice]
This collaboration with Hori Shichimeien, one of Uji's most well known tea producers, has been something we have been working towards for a very long time. Incorporating tea in beer can be difficult, but working closely with our compatriots and utilizing their deep understanding of tea and its production methods allowed us to create two unique products from one base beer. After many months of discussion and testing, we settled on using Sencha green tea in Ke, and Tencha (the pre-ground form of maccha) in Hare. This collaboration challenged us as brewers to think about how the flavor and mouthfeel of tea can be used to accentuate attributes common to beer and we are proud to share what that effort has manifested.
