  2. Celebrating National Saison Day!

    Of all the beer styles brewed toady, few are open to as much interpretation as the saison. Saisons are highly carbonated and refreshing pale ales that were originally brewed by Belgian farmers in order to entice seasonal farmhands or “saisonniers” to sign on for summer work. Yeast plays a big role in their flavor profile and while most are brewed with strains that produce highly aromatic and spicy flavors, some also incorporate wild yeast strains such as Brettanomyces which can impart some earthy funk. So raise a toast to this classic style with one of these refreshing favorites on #NationalSaisonDay!
