{thirsty thursday – saison 88}

6 Mar

saison-1

saisons are some of my favourite kinds of beer.  when i worked for whole foods in new york city, we had a beer room!  i was going to link you, to show it off to you guys – but apparently it closed!  i can’t believe it!… it’s hard to imagine what it looks like or what’s there now.  life is weird like that – how stuff changes…

i digress.

when i worked at that awesome store, the beer room had a local contest for homebrewers – and the winner got to put their beer on one of our taps!  the winner was a saison, farmhouse ale. it was, and maybe to this day still is, one of the BEST beers i have ever tried if not my favourite beer i’ve ever tried.  and, i gotta tell ya – i’ve tried quite a few beers.  this saison 88 from santa fe brewing company reminded me a lot of that delicious homebrew i had in ol’ NYC some 5 years ago now. i remember it well, though.  it stayed with me… one remembers a really good beer.
