Similar to Harvester’s other beers, the Dubbel is made using roasted chestnuts but is differentiated by the addition of dark Belgian candi syrup. It’s lightly hopped with Styrian Goldings, and fermented with a blend of two gluten-free Belgian yeast strains.
When Harvester founder, James Neumeister was starting out as a homebrewer, he contacted homebrewing legend Denny Conn and asked him where he could learn to brew using the batch-sparge method that Denny advocates for when home-brewing. Denny invited James over that weekend and after a day of brewing under Denny’s tutelage, his word quickly became the rule when James was home-brewing, prompting his other brewing partners to start referring to Mr. Conn as ‘Saint’ Denny. This background combined with the common practice of Belgian style beers having ‘Saint’ names led to the name St. Denny for this beer.
