San Francisco’s Almanac Beer Company was founded in 2010 by Jesse Friedman and Damian Fagan.

The brewery focuses on farm-to-barrel brewing, selecting the best in locally sourced fruit and blending it into beers inspired by the great brewing traditions of the world.

They are dedicated to producing seasonal artisan ales, brewed specifically to complement local cuisine sourced and prepared with the same great care and craft.

Almanac describe the de Brettaville series of beers on their website:

“Farm to Barrel beers focus on the eons-old tradition of aging beers in oak barrels, and our de Brettaville saisons expand upon this tradition by highlighting the magical properties of wild brettanomyces yeast. We start by brewing a bright and aromatic farmhouse ale with a blend of twelve “brett” yeast strains. After a vigorous primary fermentation, the beer is racked into wine barrels to mature. In cask, the beer takes on the complex flavors of the oak, and the brettanomyces yeast creates an exotic melange of earthy funk and tropical fruit flavors. This wild ale is alive in the bottle and will continue to mature for years”

Lavender Honey de Brettaville, the latest in the de Brettaville series of beers, is a 6.5% ABV golden brett beer available in 375ml bottles and limited draft. The oak-fermented brettanomyces blonde base beer is combined with hand-picked lavender grown at Eatwell Farms in Dixon, California and wildflower honey.
