Francois Blanchard Boisson Sauvage BierTabula Rasa
Farmhouse Ale from Francois Blanchard.
Francois grew up in the Loire and spent years working in Tours as a professional jazz musician. He is exceptionally talented as a musician and music remains an enormously important part of the household. He made the decision more than ten years ago, however, to return to the family farm and focus on creating a self sustaining system of agriculture. His beloved vineyard Le Grand Clere is extraordinary. Francois has planted various fruit trees throughout, allows vines to grow over vines, and encourages as much wildlife as possible to pass through his two very small parcels. Today, the family grows a large proportion of the weekly vegetables and grains and Francois, believing that plants should not be expected to produce quality fruit every single year, has begun making lambic beer from cereal grown at the farm.
