Fred Karm of Hoppin’ Frog (Akron, OH) recently spent some time in Europe. Brewers don’t go abroad just to see the sights. They brew. First stop? Brouwerij De Molen. This is the first of three collaborations he brewed on his trip. The beer is a fusion of two styles, a saison (of European origin) and a hoppy IPA (America loves the hops).
U.S. MEETS EUROPE S.I.P.A. Collaborating with De Molen Brewery in the “Green Heart” of The Netherlands, we have created a wild and inventive recipe that is a unique blend from the best of both worlds! A super-charged Saison I.P.A. is born, featuring kilos of American hops to add a crazy twist to this European-style ale. The fruity, spicy flavors of this malty Double Saison are nicely complimented by an abundance of late and dry-hopping with the finest American hops.
Availability: 22 oz bombers

Three Floyds Brewing (Munster, IN) and Brouwerij De Molen have teamed up to create Zes Zes Zes. The beer was brewed on June 15th, while the folks at De Molen were touring the United States leading up to The Festival. The beer is a big saison, fermented warm, and dry hopped. It’s evil to boot. Zes Zes Zes translates to “6 6 6” the saison of the beast. So, so metal.
