A Note on This Beer
With a cabinet full of GABF Golds for their Saisons, Funkwerks is free to add exciting new flavors to the style, knowing they’ll only add to their solid gold base. So when they went berserk for white wine flavor in their new Saison by adding real Chardonnay grapes and aging it for two months in Chardonnay barrels, the results were trailblazing grapey greatness- their one-time release Blanc Saison.
Funkwerks gives extra depth to the bright green fruity notes of the grapes, drawing out the peppery notes of their skins with the spicy qualities of their proprietary house yeast. Additional apple and pear complexity piles on with the help of a yeast strain from their friends at River North Brewery. Its brief foray into the barrel yields rich buttery yet citric character that enlivens with every sip.
Forged at the intersection between beer and wine, Blanc feels doubly familiar and doubly new. When brilliant minds and ingredients come together in completely novel beers, we’re reminded that anything is possible. Just remember that this genius is a special collaboration that was only made once, so you’ll only get one chance to experience it!
