A Mug Full Of History (...And Delicious Lager)

Permutation 6.07 New England Corn Lager

Introducing Permutation 6.07: New England Corn Lager! The delicious mug is full of more than just beer - it represents the history of the region’s agriculture, and some new lessons about the role corn can take in a lager (because let’s be honest, the topic has quite the flashpoint).

This story starts at Plimoth Plantation on the South Shore of Massachusetts. Growing up in the area surely meant a field trip to this living museum, where the buildings and activities recreate 17th-century life. The Plimoth Grist Mill sits adjacent to Town Brook on the original Jenney Grist Mill (erected in 1636).

Inside, millers Matt Tavares and Kim VanWormer operate the fully-functioning mill to grind organic corn on 200-year-old millstones. The delicious, fragrant corn milled here is organic, fresh and locally grown - worlds away from the heavily processed syrup you may think of when you hear the word corn. Listening to Matt talk about driving out to Four Star Farms in Western Mass to pick up the harvested corn, then watching Kim leverage the stones into place, pour the raw corn, and run the processed cornmeal through her hands - it reminds us of the tactile connection to ingredients that producers have had for centuries.

Permutation 6.07 is a further extension of this partnership. On a crisp winter morning, Ryan and Steve added pounds and pounds of freshly milled corn to the mash of a new lager recipe. Almost two months of lagering in our horizontal tanks brought this concept to the glass, and today we’re proud to pour growlers at both locations. The raw, organic corn imparts a snappy, refreshing sweetness to underscore the subtle floral zestiness that the rest of the recipe brings. We hope you enjoy the taste of New England agriculture, hand-grown and created with respect to history and dedication to the future!
