This is locally-sourced Oaxacan Green Dent corn grown by our friends at Forts Ferry Farm. Just look at the rich and vibrant colors. We’re mesmerized.
The Zapotec people of southern Mexico introduced the world to this heirloom variety and have used it for centuries in the production of green corn tamales. It also makes the best corn bread you’ll ever taste. Not surprisingly, we’re using it for beer. A different take on our Mexican lager, to be exact. We’re brewing tomorrow but we still can’t keep our eyes off this stuff.
