Beer Description:
A Franco-Belgian inspired bière de garde by The Leelanau Brewing Company.

A Bière de Garde style golden- (literally, a beer for keeping)

*Not exactly fitting this profile of 'bière de Garde', it can be classified better as a Michigan Bière de Garde or Leelanau Bière de Garde.



Taste Profile:

A smooth and delicious ale with a great hop balance and subtle fruit notes. Complex, yet restrained bitters compose clean tropical fruits and faint herbal nuances that dance among mellow undertones of malt and distinctive yeast, finishing with signature cellar notes of French oak.



Food Pairing:

For a symphony of flavors serve with cassoulet, rack of lamb, and roast poultry dishes. Good Harbor Golden is sublime with most everything from the classic French culinary repertoire. Good Harbor Golden’s hearty flavor works well with spicy curry dishes and spicy sausages.
Sensational with washed-rind cheeses.



Serving Suggestions:

Before serving, keep bottle upright and undisturbed.
Serve at cellar temperature in a tulip glass or oversized wine glass.

Cellar upright in a cool dark place.
