Occasionally, The Salty Lady gets an adventurous notion. She coops herself up inside of barrel and takes a crazy ride with some fruit for a wood-laden refermentation. The Salty Lady spends a few months in wine-barrels with various fruits. The result is an amazingly complex, tart, salty, fruity, and refreshing treat. What comes out of the barrel is a little more refined and adventurous and is known as The Queen of the Mist. This occasional brew will only be release a few times per year in a very limited batch. We’ll use a different fruit each time we make it.
Annie Edison Taylor was an American adventurer who on her 63rd birthday, October 24, 1901, became the first person to survive a trip over Niagara Falls in a barrel. The barrel was put over the side of a rowboat, and Taylor climbed in, along with her lucky heart-shaped pillow. After screwing down the lid, friends used a bicycle tire pump to compress the air in the barrel. The hole used for this was plugged with a cork, and Taylor was set adrift near the American shore, south of Goat Island.
The Niagara River currents carried the barrel over the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Rescuers reached her barrel shortly after the plunge. Taylor was discovered to be alive and relatively uninjured, except for a small gash on her head. After the journey, Annie Taylor told the press:
“If it was with my dying breath, I would caution anyone against attempting the feat… I would sooner walk up to the mouth of a cannon, knowing it was going to blow me to pieces than make another trip over the Fall.”
Here’s What People are Saying.
A very flavorfully complex Gose beer with the right balance of tartness and carbonation. Great for folks who enjoy sparkling wines.Phillip Morales
