Monday Night Saint Monday, a new seasonal Helles lager debuts for the first time this week.
This lighter alcohol by volume beer (4.4%) is designed to be a “recovery beer” of sorts, after a full weekend of boozing. The beer’s name “Saint Monday” refers to the tradition of being “absent” on Monday. We are assuming to recover from drinking or to continue drinking. As a cultural reference, Saint Monday is documented back to the 18th Century in England. Even Benjamin Franklin referenced Saint Monday in his autobiography.
Monday Night has made a lot of fun and experimental beers lately, but brewmaster Peter Kylie wanted to take a run at German traditional style like the Helles Lager. Saint Monday is brewed with German Pilsner and Munich malts, as well as German Hallertau and Czech Saaz hops. The brewers put a strong focus on matching the water chemistry of southern Germany.
Spicy and floral notes culminate in a clean, bready, and dare we say benevolent finish.
