Beer of the Month: March 2019

Spring has sprung! This season is perfect for refreshing, low ABV beer styles, and Saisons perfectly hit the spot. This month I'm showcasing a variety of domestic Saisons, some made in a more classic style, some more experimental. Hope you enjoy!

Cheers!

Upright Brewing - Saison Vert

Portland, Oregon

Saison brewed with black limes

Hops & Grain: N/A

Serving Temperature: 50-55F

To me, Upright Brewing is one of the breweries that stands out in Portland, OR. The brewery specializes in farmhouse inspired beers rooted in France and Belgium with a Pacific NW twist. This beer showcases their take on the classic Saison style by adding in some black limes (essentially sun-bathed limes) to add some zesty complexity to the beer. 

Notes of under-ripe pineapple, lime, salt, tingly effervescence, honeycomb, dehydrated lime peels.

 

Urban Roots - Tomorrow's Verse

Sacramento, CA

Saison (bottle fermented)

Hops & Grain: N/A

Serving Temperature: 50-55F

Urban Roots is a brewery & smokehouse located in Downtown Sacramento. Specializing in smoked meats, tasty beers and good times. Out of the three beers, this one is more of a traditional, clean tasting Saison.

Notes of hay, honey, jasmine, grass, white flowers with a slightly bitter finish

 

Logsdon Farmhouse Ales - Rupert's Rye

Hood River, Oregon

Dark Rye Saison with Pear Juice

Dark rye malt, Liberty hops, saccharomyces, brettanomyces and lactic acid bacteria

Serving temperature: 50-55F

Logsdon Farmhouse Ales produces some of the best Farmhouse Ales in the country. Most of the brewery’s fans anticipate their annual award winning release “Peche n Brett” (a Saison re-fermented with peaches). We only get a case! If interested, please email “bpineda@plumpjack.com” to begin allocation on this rare release. For now, we enjoy their Rupert’s Rye – a delicious dark rye Saison with pear juice added.

Notes of rye bread, marble pound cake, slight lactic acid, dusty funky, slightly sour finish.
