Local Saisons

By: Jeremy Pott, Regional Operations Manager, Certified Cicerone®

With winter's gloomy grip on the weather loosening and the sun beginning to reign, we’re moving away from heavy and hearty brews.

Spring ushers in the time for Saisons. These beers were originally brewed in southern Belgium during the cooler months for consumption in the summer season.

Saisons are light enough to be thirst quenching with great character. Fruity and peppery on the nose with a mix of herbs, spice and earthiness on the palate.   Quench your thirst with these great examples of this wonderful warmer weather style.
