Spring Turning Saison Brewdays

You could say that Spring Turning Saison started as my award-winning Wry Saison recipe, the winner of the August 2010 Brooklyn Wort homebrew contest.  But its real origin lies much deeper: somewhere in the space between the promise of spring, the long agricultural tradition on the North Fork, and my love of Farmhouse Ales.
This French Farmhouse Style Ale highlights the spicy character of Saison Yeast, Rye Malt (almost 30%) and Saaz Hops.  Pilsner and Vienna Malts, unmalted Wheat, and Golding Hops round our this slightly dry and exceedingly quaffable late spring offering.

If this beer doesn't make you long for warmer weather, you might consider moving to Alaska with Sarah Palin.  Join us for the March 24th release of Spring Turning Saison at Jimmy's 43.
