Ove's Loaf (Blended Blonde)

This blonde sourdough is gentle and subtly sweet, made with the delicate mingle of white, wheat and rye flour.

*Now made with spent grains (the grain mash remaining after brewing beer) from Stick City Brewing Co. These grains will vary according to what beers are being brewed, offering a new flavor each time.*


This artisan bread reminds me of Ove from the Swedish novel, A Man Called Ove, as it is straightforward, unembellished by strange ingredients or flavor. It is rustic and rugged, and like Ove, it is full of depth and personality. Additionally, this sourdough bread reminds me of Ove who discovers that when he blends his life with his neighbors, his life is made richer like the Blended Blonde with its mix of wheat, rye, and spent grains. Each time you have a slice of the hearty Blended Blonde, think of the curmudgeony, yet loving, Swedish character.
