Bière de Pieces #2 This is the second in our blended saison series, consisting or three different variants of blonde saison: (1) Tradition — Old World base saison with Saaz and Hallertau, fermented with a blend of Saccharomyces strains plus a bit of our house culture; (2) Rafters — Blonde saison brewed with aged whole leaf hops and fermented in oak with our house culture; and (3) Saison Meer: Gin Barrel — Blonde Saison using solely Midwestern ingredients fermented in local gin barrels with our house culture. We're quite excited that after 7 months of brewing, we finally have a diverse enough set of beers to really do a lot of blending, which is undoubtedly our favorite aspect of brewing. #craftbeer #afterthoughtbrewing #saison #ILbeer #midwesternbeer #ginbarrel #localbeer
