COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mary of the Gael Saison-Style Farmhouse Ale. Spring Saison. St. Brigid’s Day (AKA Mary of the Gael) is celebrated in Ireland at the time of the Imbolic, a once pagan celebration of "Summer in the belly of winter." This release in our series of seasonal saisons is a refreshingly hoppy take on saison for springtime. Mary of the Gael has a simple base of pilsener malt, a touch of honey malt and is dry-hopped with a copious amount of floral hops.
