After reaching maturity in separate tanks, the two beers are transferred into oak and allowed to mellow for another month; Red and White: a Belgian wit fermented with orange peel and juice from Pinot Noir grapes aged in oak and Chateau Jiahu is made from a 9000 year old Neolithic recipe of Northern China discovered by a molecular archeologist.
