Our Spring Saison is light blonde in color with a fresh hoppiness
and a wild and rustic Brettanomyces character. Lighter in color
and alcohol than our Saison Rue, yet equally complex in its own
way. Perfect for warmer weather and Spring celebrations.

Our Summer seasonal, Trade Winds Tripel is a Belgian-style Golden
Ale with a Southeast Asian twist. Instead of using candi sugar (typical
for such a beer), we use rice in the mash to lighten the body and
increase the gravity, and spice with Thai Basil. The result is an
aromatic, digestible and complex beer made for a lazy summer evening.

Brewed with 17 lbs. of yams per barrel (in other words, a lot of
yams!), this autumn seasonal is a different take on the “pumpkin”
beer style. Brewed with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, vanilla, molasses,
and maple syrup, and fermented with our traditional Belgian yeast
strain, this bold and spicy beer is perfect on a cold autumn evening.

Partridge in a Pear Tree is the first in the 12 Days/Years of Christmas Series. Brewed in the style of a Belgian-style Dark Strong Ale, brewed with
our brewery-made dark candi sugar, Munich and Vienna malts. Dark
brown in color, fruity and complex with a rich malt backbone. This
is a simple yet immensely complex beer meant to be savored and shared
with friends and family.

2 Turtle Doves is the second in the 12 Days/Years of Christmas Series. We decided to take our inspiration from the name and base the beer on the "turtle" candy, brewing it with cocoa nibs, toasted pecans, caramelized sugar and a lot of caramel malts. Somewhere between a Belgian-style Dark Strong Ale and an Imperial Porter, this beer is designed to take the journey through time until 12 Drummers Drumming.

Three French Hens is the third in the 12 Days/Years of Christmas Series. We again drew some inspiration from the name and decided that at least a portion of this beer had to be aged in French oak barrels. What we came out with is a bold and spicy Belgian Dark Strong Ale, 25% aged in oak. This beer is designed to take the journey through time until 12 Drummers Drumming, but is a delightful holiday treat right off the shelf.

Spiced Strong Dark Ale. The Twelve Days of Christmas series continues! We took inspiration from the traditional winter warmer for our fourth verse, integrating gingerbread spices into a robust dark ale. Notes of licorice & banana bread mingle with dark fruit, molasses and bitter chocolate for a perfect cold weather sipper!
ABV: 11%, Release: Winter 2011/2012
5 Golden Rings is the 5th verse in our ‘12 Days of Christmas’ winter seasonal ale series. The only golden ale in the bunch, we spiced up the natural pause in the classic song with cinnamon, allspice and ginger along with the delicious sweet and tangy flavor of pineapple. The resulting ale is a true
holiday treat that can be enjoyed fresh or cellared until 2019, when 12 Drummers Drumming will be
