COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brett/peppercorn saison

Thomas is the third installment in our “Bearded Farmer” series of saisons. In keeping with the farmhouse brewing tradition, the idea here is to brew each successive beer a little (or a lot) differently than the ones before it.

This Saison-style ale uses Pilsner & Munich malts with Wakatu, Motueka & Pacific Gem hops, and it is fermented with a single strain of French saison yeast
