Top 10 Craft Beers
Part of the Epic Brewing Exponential Series that began in 2011 and is now in its 35th rendition.
The main ingredients in this Belgian-style farmhouse ale remain the same but the ABV and hops vary slightly from batch to batch. What doesn’t change are the malt bill of Pilsner, Maris Otter, two-row barley, rye, wheat, barley flakes, sage, rosemary and thyme. The spices -- added in the final minutes of the boil -- bring a powerful herbal bite while Belgian saison yeast contributes a spicy and subtly tart edginess. A lingering aftertaste of sage and rosemary allows you to enjoy this brew long after you’ve imbibed.
Note: Although today sage is not commonly used as an ingredient in beer, hundreds of years ago its use was the norm.
