Farmhouse Saison

Ale brewed with Grains of paradise, coriander, ginger, sweet orange peel.

Rich, fruity and aromatic burgandian brew.

Hearty and rustic golden ale. Full-bodied, hoppy and crisp. Hennepin was made to satisfy your quest for the unknown.

Great discoveries await in the lands less known.

When Father Hennepin set off for the new world, he couldn't have known he'd be the first European to lay eyes on Niagara Falls. Yet this was his destiny.

Likewise, when we decided to make our version of a Belgian Saison spicier than others, we had no idea what new realms of flavor we'd discover.

What we suspect you'll find, though, is a thirst-quenching, rustic golden ale with hints of ginger and coriander. Perfect for evenings when your destination isn't quite so defined.

Hennepin should be served in a stemmed, narrow goblet so you can grip the glass without warming the beer or limiting the possibilities.

Hennepin's ginger and spice characters make it the ideal choice for Asian foods. Especially spicy dishes. Its crisp finish and moderate hoppiness also pair well with appetizers.

Brewmaster Phil's Tasting Notes

This style is a farmhouse ale, and is considered to be in the domain of the Belgian Saisons. Hennepin is a delicious brew for all seasons, it is spicy and refreshing.

A moderately hoppy, farmhouse-style ale with a champagne-like effervescence, Hennepin has a crisp start followed by malt sweetness balanced with a firm bitterness. Hennepin has a bounty of great flavors: ginger, spice, orange and toasted grain. Pouring a bright golden color with a spicy-sweet balance of orange peel, sweet malt, hops and ginger, Hennepin makes way for a dry finish with a slight bite of ginger.

Chef's tasting notes & recipes

As an accompaniment, it leans towards Asian cuisine, especially sushi. The ginger notes and the coriander pair sublimely with hamachi and salmon and a good dose of wasabi.
