Grand Cru is a term brewers borrowed from winemakers, meaning “great growth”. It typically represents a special blend or release of the highest quality. These cheery, tasty beers are a gift to customers to share with family and friends.

Last year the Soul Barrel group floor malted a batch of barley in one of their old giant wine tanks, then dried it in the sun and over a fire for a very special beer. This special version of Live Culture features 100% Soul Barrel malt, made from Caledon barley that we floor malted ourselves in their old wine tanks. The beer was fermented in a large French oak barrel, with the native Live Culture yeast blend that live in the wood. A long aging period followed, during which the wild yeast slowly continued to work, contributing the dry, funky, peppery, light fruit notes the Live Culture is known for. After aging it was blended with fresh citrus fynbos and hops. This version remind them of aged, dry champagne.

The beer is thoroughly imprinted with their environment. The process of growing the grain, in the brewery, fermenting the beer with their native wild yeast, and aging it with their homegrown fynbos gives a unique sense of place.
