Our newest beer on tap might be a little difficult to pronounce, but you’ll be so busy sipping it you won’t have time to say much anyway. We welcome the Lavandula Saison to our taps this week, making it the second never-before-brewed ale we’ve crafted this summer (see Whittle Wit). You could say we’re feeling adventurous.
Lavandula is the genus name for lavender, which we added at the finish of this Farmhouse-style brew. Historically, saisons are brewed using a range of different spices such as coriander, orange zest or ginger. We threw in some lavender flowers to add to the floral character, without being too over-powering. We think you’ll like it.

Food Pairing Suggestions
First off, we’d say pair this beer with some sunshine and an Adirondack chair. Then, we’d suggest a soft goat cheese, fruit plate, and dessert. The light body and floral, spicy aroma also pair well with white fish and herbed foods.

We’re excited to take this beer along on our last camping and rafting trips of the season. So far, we’ve heard words like “new favorite” and “boom” from our coworkers. Come try a pint, and grab some to-go in a liter or growler bottle for the road.
