Notch Brewing’s Saison has been promoted to year round status. This saison (or Worker’s Beer) is a mere 3.8% ABV. Starting in 22oz bottles was a way to test the demand for a low abv session saison. 6-packscarry a higher packaging cost. With such a positive response, the promotion is now official. Saison launched in June, 2011.
Brewed in the traditional Saison style of Belgium, this is the classic farmhouse beer. Originally brewed by farms to slake the thirst of seasonal workers (les saisonniers), this refreshing beer had a lower alcohol content that is not often seen in today’s modern Saison. Notch returns the Saison to its roots, not only in alcohol content, but by using local ingredients much like the Belgian farmers. The wheat used in Notch Saison is malted by Valley Malt in Hadley Massachusetts.
