What to do with 275 gallons of Bartlett Pear Juice? Traditional perry is a delicate and subtle beverage and is made using only perry pears; that is, pears grown specifically to make perry, not for eating.

The fermentation stalled with a high residual sweetness, but it had great potential. The addition of Simcoe hops, noted for earthy and piney aromas with a hint of passionfruit and citrus blew us away. Very limited quantity.
