Please everyone, just Keep Calm… And Saison! Because it’s back on tap this week. We know a small panic ensued when we kicked the last keg in the taproom, but Head Brewer Matty has sorted us out with a new batch of this much beloved beer.
This French farmhouse/saison ale is dry, fruity and peppery with a pale straw-colored haze and billowy head when poured. Saison (pronounced say-zohn) is French for “season”. This farmhouse style of beer was historically brewed in the winter months when temperatures were lower and more favorable for fermentation and then consumed by farmhands in the hot summer months. With modern equipment we can brew this style any season we want, so you can drink it anytime you need a break from your own farm(yard) work. 6% ABV, 3.9 SRM, 26 IBU

From the brewhouse
Lots of brewing going on this week! Brewing the Spilt Milk milk stout on Tuesday. The ever popular Saison is back on tap. The double batch of Drone is kegged. Thursday and Friday Matty will be brewing a double batch of the Publican English-style pub ale. And we’ve finally received all the ingredients that we need to brew our Captain Bligh – a big porter with coconut, vanilla beans, and cocoa nibs – we’re hoping this will be ready for the holidays.
Two new firkins are coming up this month for Firkin Friday – Drone Honey Rye IPA with Pineapple on Friday, November 11. And Keep Calm and Saison with Strawberries on Friday, November 18.
