Even with a portfolio chock full of variety, our brewers are always excited about the next beer they want to brew. The Brewers’ Cut series gives our talented brewing staff an inspired outlet for these beers. With the creation of these recipes, both our team and our fans win.
Known for a diverse range of yeast-driven flavors including herbal citrus and spice, Saison also lends a tremendous amount of flexibility to the adventurous brewer who seeks to push these flavors even further through the addition of inspired ingredients. Our first foray into Saison included Sage and Blackberries, a combination right at home with the cooler weather of early Fall. As we move into Spring we’ve chosen a more citrus-forward, though still subtle, hop profile, along with the warm herbal notes of dried elderflowers. The beer is light in body, with a dry finish, with an intriguing character of floral melon and soft orange.
In the realm of hop-forward beers, malt flavors usually get the shaft. You could understand if they became a little…Embittered. For this round of Brewers’ Cut, we give them their due and introduce our Embittered Brown Ale.
