If you haven’t noticed in our wall of beer, we are big Saison fans here at Longtable. This Thursday, we are going to feature one of the best Saison brewers in the USA, Saint Somewhere Brewing Co. out of Tarpon Springs, Florida. Here is a little about them:
Located in Tarpon Springs, Saint Somewhere Brewing Company is a brewer of traditional Belgian style ales. We are a small batch brewery, using only the finest ingredients available.
Belgium malt and wheat, whole noble hops and open fermentation add to the complexity of our ales. Our beers are unfiltered and re-fermented in the bottle. We brew simply and authentically, the way beer was brewed 100 years ago.
We will be pouring 3 of their excellent Farmhouse Saisons, one on tap and two from the bottle:
Anne (tap) – 9 or 13 oz pours – Farmhouse ale brewed with Elder Flowers, fresh and dried, giving a beautiful floral aroma and a subtle sweetness. Our house yeast along with open fermentation and resident ‘Free Range Tarpon Springs Brettanomyces’ add to the complexity of this ale. It is unfiltered and bottle conditioned. Brewed using 100% Belgian malt, whole cone noble hops, and open fermentation.
Caitlin (bottle) – 6 or 9 oz pours – Farmhouse ale brewed with lots of whole dried oranges and fresh orange zest. Our house yeast along with open fermentation and resident ‘Free Range Tarpon Springs Brettanomyces’ add to the complexity of this ale. It is unfiltered and bottle conditioned.
Plongeur A’ L’eponge (bottle) – 6 or 9 oz pours – This beer is a funky saison dry hopped with Aramis hops. Saint Somewhere is all about funky. We go as far as encouraging it! We don’t use kettle finings, filtration of any kind, we open ferment along with our house yeast in a building purpose built to encourage crazy wild yeast and bacteria (the good kind), then bottle or keg condition.
This is a great chance to try three beers you will rarely find available in the Midwest. So stop in and enjoy with some of our tasty food, as saisons are great food pairing beers. Cheers!
