Our Special Saison follows our Citra IPA by only a couple of hours. It is “Special” not because it rides the short bus to school, but because it has a little more alcohol than your pedestrian Saison.

The Saison is a Belgian/French ale that was, by law, an entitlement for farm workers in the region. It was safer to drink than local water and was allotted at 4 liters per worker.

We are adding some brewers sugar and some Belgian clear candi sugar (a pound each) to the beer near the end of the boil to raise the alcohol level and let it ferment into a drier flavor profile.

We also bid adeu to our hot liquor tank, as it gets replaced with one of our recently acquired pretty kegs. It will be nice to have a HLT that does not wobble on the burner.
