Stone Brewing Co. (Escondido, CA) has been hinting at the release of a new beer a little different then their usual hop aggressive, or “arrogant” ales. By the looks of it, that beer will be Stone Saison.
Stone also owns a farm that grows various herbs and spices for their restaurant – Stone World Bistro & Gardens. Just like the restaurant, this farm-to-table saison is brewed with home grown lemon zest, lemon thyme, and lavender.
In spring 2011, Stone bought the farm, literally, taking over 19 acres of fertile Southern California soil where we now grow pristine fruits, vegetables, herbs and more for our Stone Brewing World Bistro &. Gardens restaurants. A taste of our homespun farm-to-tableism is provided in this farmhouse ale stoked with lemon zest, plus lemon thyme and lavender straight from Stone Farms. This spring-to-summer saison is citric and herbal on the palate with a dry, peppery finish. Thanks to the infusion of fresh West Coast ingredients, this isn’t your everyday saison. It’s our saison-100% Stone. Celebrate the sunny season with an authentic taste of our farm and, with it, our commitment to quality.
Look for Stone Saison in 12oz bottles and draft.
