Get Your Saison On – it’s not too hot to brew

Saison

 

Sacramento might be hot, but that’s no excuse to stop brewing! Saison and other farmhouse styles are ideal to brew in warmer weather. Many of the yeast strains you can choose from ferment ideally in temperatures ranging from 84 to 95 degrees, and produce wonderful and refreshing esters. Saison was the traditional drink of Belgian summer seasonal farmworkers - les saisonierres. Farmhouse ale also makes a great base for secondary ferments on seasonal fruits or adding spices.

If you haven’t brewed a saison before, come in and we’ll get you set up with a recipe and all the ingredients you need. A votre santé!
