WaySeeker Ale Project
Style: Could be anything!
The "WaySeeker Ale Project" is the Research and Development arm of BarkEater Craft Brewery. This project gives us the freedom to explore new & exciting beers that are inspired by historical styles OR something completely different that takes us in an entirely new direction. WaySeeking or wayfinding is the process of orienting ourselves and then navigating a way forward toward a new destination either physically or figuratively. The beers that will be introduced under this project will be offered exclusively at our taproom in Lowville, NY. Patrons will have an opportunity to experience these special beers and offer feedback to the brewers as part of the development process.
"WaySeeker Studios" is the name of our founder's drawing studio. The development of his drawing style was a deeply personal exploration; he, therefore, named it after his first sea kayak, called "WaySeeker." It also seemed an appropriate name for this new form of exploration in the brewing of great handcrafted beer.
